BATON ROUGE - More than 40 percent of Louisiana is without power because of Hurricane Isaac, now downgraded to a tropical depression.

The Public Service Commission says 871,000 homes and businesses around the state - about 41 percent of all customers - are without power.

Nearly all customers were without power in Plaquemines and St. John the Baptist parishes, according to the PSC statistics.

Eleven other parishes had three-quarters of homes and businesses or more with power outages: Iberville, Jefferson, Lafourche, Orleans, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. James, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne and West Feliciana parishes.
