Power was restored Tuesday night to residents of Morgan City following an "electrical malfunction"

On March 22, city officials said a CLECO electrical feed to the city malfunctioned causing a citywide power outage.

The problem area was located and resolved by crews by Tuesday afternoon.

The cause of the outage was a tree that became uprooted and fell onto multiple electrical wires, utility poles and transformers, officials said.

The areas of Wyandotte and along the industrial corridor on Railroad Avenue were some of the last areas to receive power in the city.
