Cleco completes storm restoration in Rapides and Avoyelles parishes

PINEVILLE, La., September 1, 2012 - As Cleco wraps up restoration in much of its service territory after Hurricane Isaac plowed through its service territory earlier in the week, work continues in St. Tammany, Washington and St. Mary parishes. Flood waters are receding in many areas of St. Tammany Parish; however, parts are still underwater hampering restoration. Cleco has restored power to 72 percent of its Northshore customers since restoration began.

Current Outage/Restoration Count
St. Mary Parish - 21 
St. Tammany Parish - 17,529 
Washington Parish - 393
