From the Desk of Mayor Ronnie Williams, City of Natchitoches
SWEPCO Update: Some people in the rural areas of Natchitoches have been restored but it seems most still don’t have power. The representative said that they have about 3,000 additional workers working to restore electricity. They’ve had poles and transmission lines down similar to the city of Natchitoches. One issue that SWEPCO encountered is related to lodging for their employees and contractors. Seemingly, a local business has opened its doors for their employees. This will allow their linemen more time to work on restoring power. If you receive energy from SWEPCO, as I do, you may have a couple more days before power is restored.
