Just over 1,800 without power across Louisiana following Wednesday's severe weather
BATON ROUGE - The morning after Wednesday's severe weather, a total of 1,830 utility customers do not have power in Louisiana.
As of 9 a.m., Thursday, Entergy's outage map shows the majority of outages in Jefferson, St. Charles, and Lafourche.
While Baton Rouge dodged the worst of Wednesday afternoon's damaging weather, the capital area's neighbors to the West were severely impacted and will yet again, begin the work of storm recovery in the days to come.
Much of the destruction to homes and structures in South Lake Charles can be traced back to several tornadoes that formed in the area Wednesday. Though a Tornado Watch was issued for all parishes, South Lake Charles appeared to withstand the brunt of blow.
