A 138,000 volt transmission line has failed causing three different substations to go offline. It is believed that a tree may have fallen on the line, whatever the damage it must be located and repaired before the line can brought back online. This is affecting Bossier Parish which was down to around 700 without power, as of 9:53pm the number out is up to 9,600.
