CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -
Thousands of ArkLaTex AEP customers are back in the light Sunday evening after coping with a power outage that at one point affected customers in both Caddo and Red River parishes.
AEP spokesperson Kacee Kirschvink says that power was restored about 7 p.m. Outage maps on AEP's website would take a while to reflect the updated information.
Earlier, as many as 5,039 customers in Caddo Parish were without electricity for about four hours, according to the AEP website. During that time the temperature in Shreveport reached 102 degrees, according to KSLA Stormtracker 12.
Kirschvink says equipment failure at a substation in Shreveport was the source of the outage.
The outage, which began about 3:30 p.m., affected traffic in Shreveport, particularly in the Highland neighborhood along Kings Highway, Creswell, Line and Southern avenues. Shreveport police officers directed traffic in those areas.
Also Sunday evening AEP's outage map showed 1,435 customers without power in the Fayetteville, Arkansas area and about 170 without power in Longview, Texas. Those outages were not related to the outage in Shreveport, Kirschvink says.
AEP, also known as SWEPCO, serves over 200 communities on its lines, representing a diverse 33,000-square mile service area of northern and central La., east and north Texas, and western Arkansas with a population of two million. It supplies electricity to over 520,000 customers over 5,000 miles of transmission lines and about 25,500 miles of distribution power lines, according to the company website.
