POWER OUT: SWEPCO says problem with main feeder line

Posted: Updated:

Power outages have been reported Monday in various parts of Caddo Parish, and some customers have been without electricity for six to seven hours.

According to SWEPCO's outage map, 581 customers within the parish are in the dark now. A SWEPCO representative said earlier tonight that the company was not then sure if all of the blackouts were related.

Those in the Summer Grove area of Shreveport are due to a problem with a main feeder line. SWEPCO expected the power to return about 9 p.m. there.

Other outages have been reported, and those in the area of Ford Street can expect power back around 11 p.m. SWEPCO is not yet sure of the cause for that area's blackout, but a representative said it could be related to the feeder issue.
