Nearly one quarter of SLEMCO customers in Vermilion Parish are without power at this hour because of a power grid problem
According to the power company, more than 3,500 customers in Vermilion Parish have no electricity. In addition, SLEMCO is reporting that more than 1,200 customers in Acadia Parish have lost power.
The grid in that area failed, knocking out power to those customers. SLEMCO says crews are on the scene and working on the problem. They are hoping to have power restored in the next hour.
