City of Natchitoches Hurricane Laura Aftermath Update

On Tuesday, our utility crews had some setbacks across the city in restoring power, but have continued to restore more customers throughout the day. If power has been restored to your area and you experience a new outage, please let us know.

Samples were sent to the lab today in reference to the Boil Advisory for the I-49 Corridor. We expect to have those results tomorrow and hoping to be able to rescind the advisory.

Additionally, our areas continues to experience heat index values between 100 and 110 degrees, making heat-related illnesses for those spending time outdoors or without air conditioning more likely. Please continue to check on your friends, relatives and neighbors who do not have power during this time and be mindful of these temperatures if you are working to clear debris of your property.
