BATON ROUGE - Power was knocked out near LSU Wednesday evening after a bird hit some equipment, causing the transformer to fail.

4,300 customers lost power around 6 p.m. between I-10 and LSU's campus. An Entergy spokesperson tells WBRZ a bird hit some of the equipment, which caused the initial outage.

Entergy says crews are on site making repairs. Power was restored before 5 a.m. Thursday.
