PINEVILLE, La. – Feb. 15, 2021 (4 p.m.) – As of 4 p.m., Cleco Power has restored power to over 7,700 customers who lost electricity due to the winter storm.  At the height of the storm, 11,110 customers were without power.  

“Damage assessment and restoration efforts in some areas are being hindered by deteriorating road conditions and road closures which are delaying the arrival of some out-of-state contractor crews,” said James Lass, director of distribution operations and emergency management.  “While crews will continue to work into the night, some customers will be without power overnight.”

DeSoto – Less than 5 customers

Rapides – 10 customers
Sabine – 7 customers
St. Landry – 11 customers
