As of 9 a.m., Cleco had restored power to more than 58,000 of the 63,000 Cleco customers who lost power following Tropical Storm Barry.

Today, the company plans to restore power to most customers, but expects there will be some scattered outages overnight.

"At this point in our restoration process, the work we are performing to repair damage is restoring a smaller number of customers, resulting in a slower restoration time," said Lass. "We want our customers without power to know, we are still working just as hard to repair their outage and restoring their power is very important to us."

As of 9 a.m., Cleco had 5,000 customers without power.

Parish Customers without power:

Allen - 5

Avoyelles - 39

Evangeline - 15

Iberia - 1,929

Rapides - 91

St. Martin - 206

St. Mary - 2,534

St. Tammany - 81
