Some Lafayette residents and businesses near the Oil Center and Saint Street areas are without electricity at this hour.
The Lafayette Utilities System says the outage is due to downed power lines at the corner of Pinhook Road and St. Mary Avenue. Officials say a tall vehicle caught a signal light cable and brought down wires. LUS says all but 100 customers have had power restored..
LUS says electricity should be restored to the remaining affected customers within the next two to three hours. If you need to report an outage, call 291-5700.
