3,000 without power in East Baton Rouge after Demco outage
BATON ROUGE - Thousands are without power after a reported equipment failure in the capital area Friday.
Demco reports just over 3,000 of its customers in East Baton Rouge were still being affected as of 3:50 p.m. Another 300 were affected in West Feliciana Parish.
A Demco spokesperson says the outage was caused by an issue with a transmission line. Most of those affected should have their power restored within the next couple hours.
