As of 9 p.m. on July 16, Cleco reports having restored power to 99% of their 63,000 customers who lost power following Barry.

There are approximately 350 customers without power in the hardest hit areas of Iberia, St. Martin, and St. Mary Parishes.

The company said it expects to have a small number of customers without power throughout the night.

James Lass, general manager of distribution operations and emergency management, said that while the company worked very hard today to restore all power, they were unable to.

"However," Lass said, "we anticipate that by tomorrow all customers who can take power will be restored. We appreciate our customers' support as crews work to safely restore their power."

SLEMCO is reporting zero outages.

Entergy is reporting about 160 customers without power in Acadiana as of 5 p.m.
