Approximately 1,900 Entergy customers in Scott and Lafayette are without power at this hour.
According to Entergy's website, the first power outages were reported just after 9 A. M. along University Avenue, Renaud Drive, and in the Coulee Mine area. A little more than an hour later, most of Scott lost power.
Officials say a blown high-side fuse at the Lafayette substation caused the outage. Crews are on site replacing the fuse, and officials say all customers should have their power restored within the half-hour.
