Ruston Light and Power Director Zach Spivey said several power outages were reported.
"Let's just say it was a bad weekend," Spivey said.
Among the outages were two at Louisiana Tech University and one in the Franklin Avenue area of Ruston.
"A lightning strike took Tech out for about 15 minutes at about 4:45 p.m.," Spivey said. "Shortly afterward we got a call from the Tech Dairy that lightning had knocked them out."
At 5:14 p.m., Spivey said Franklin Avenue was knocked out by lightening.
