Electricity is restored in St. Martinville and in Catahoula and Parks in St. Martin Parish. A St. Martinville City Hall employee says the city was without power for about three hours, and Cleco restored it just before 4:00.
SLEMCO spokesperson Mary Laurent says a truck carrying concrete on Cade Highway hit a structure that supports the transmission line which caused the line to shut off, affecting power in Catahoula and Parks. Electricity was restored around 3:00.
