NEW ORLEANS - The panel that oversees the Superdome will hold its first regular meeting since the now infamous power outage that delayed the Super Bowl earlier this month.

The Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District board will meet this afternoon at the facility.

Entergy Corp. has said it believes the outage was caused by an electrical relay device it installed to prevent a power failure. But it's unclear whether the device had a design flaw or a manufacturing defect.

Entergy and the management company that runs the dome for the state, SMG, recently hired Utah-based forensic engineer John Palmer to perform an independent analysis of the outage.
