More than 80,000 Swepco customers lost service when Hurricane Laura hit central and northwest Louisiana last week.
“We’ve been working around the clock since Hurricane Laura hit at a scale that SWEPCO has not seen in recent history,” said Drew Seidel, SWEPCO vice president of Distribution Region Operations. “We appreciate the continued patience of customers as SWEPCO employees and our nearly 3,000 out-of-state partners work to restore power.”
Louisiana residents can call 211 to find cooling centers and other assistance.
