Power has been restored to a little more than 1,000 Lafayette Utilities System customers after a brief outage Saturday.

That outage occurred in the E Broussard area near the Vermilion River. A spokesperson said a control cabinet in the area was damaged.

Some power was as of around 1 p.m., but it took a short time longer to complete the repairs, replace the cabinet, and get all customers powered up again.

It's unclear if the outage was related to storm damage from Friday, when strong weather moved through Lafayette, the spokesperson added.
