Shreveport-Bossier was hit with a major thunder storm Thursday night/Friday morning. According to reports, many areas experienced heavy rain and winds in excess of 60 miles per hour. The storm caused mass damage around town and more than 200,000 customers were without power.
At the moment, several parts of town have no ETA on when power will be restored to them. According to a statement from SWEPCO on their Facebook page, "Estimated restoration times may be shared by late Friday evening, if the full assessments are able to be safely completed."
