Planned Thursday power outage to affect few customers

Entergy Corp. will interrupt electrical service to about 15 customers for approximately two hours Thursday, a company spokeswoman said.

The outage between 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. is needed for the company to move electrical equipment at the intersection of La. 19 and La. 412, as requested by the state Department of Transportation and Development, Entergy representative Catherine Ward said.

The company is alerting the affected customers by telephone, Ward said.
