Winds bring outages
Storms caused thousands to lose power in Lincoln and surrounding parishes on Wednesday.
Entergy Customer Service Manager Jim Pesnell said a total of about 7,000 customers were without power in Lincoln, Jackson, Union and Bienville parishes, with about 4,000 of this number in Lincoln.
“We had storms move through around mid-afternoon, and the damage was done,” Pesnell said. “This was more due to wind damage, with trees on lines.”
