The same snake that caused a power outage in parts of Iberia Parish also caused water pressure to drop in Coteau. Officials say water pressure in the area dropped for about two hours due to the power outage. They add that because of the rainy weather last night, water pressures did not reach a dangerously low level. Water pressures are back to normal.
Entergy officials say the power outage was caused by a snake that became caught in equipment at the Delcambre substation. Power was restored to all customers just before 3:00 this morning.
