    Fifty six hundred SWEPCO customers in Shreveport, Bossier City, and Haughton woke up to no power this morning. "How long have you been without power? uh its been out since 8:30 this morning" said one resident on Pomeroy Street. By 11 oclock that number had dipped down to 2400 then spiked at 5800. SWEPCO attributes that to ongoing efforts to restore the power. This is a big part of the problem, strong winds knocking down utility poles, Johnnie Mason on Hall Street was lucky enough to still have power after the pole next to his house was blown over. "I dropped everything, and got on my horse and called 911" said Mason. Tree crews worked much of the day removing tree limbs from power lines, so SWEPCO could come in behind them and restore the power. SWEPCO says a majority of the power outages appears to be in South Shreveport, this is Pomeroy Street where some tree limbs became entangled with some power lines. "It doesn't surprise me, it seems like every time the weather gets bad on this side of town it seems like this little section goes out" said Donald Kerry. By four o clock Shreveport Bossier City, and Haughton had only a few hundred customers without power.
