Andy Eldridge is a lineman for Entergy and he said, "We're picking up a few downed power lines and we got a few broke poles here and there."
Those few broken poles and downed power lines shut off the juice for about 16 thousand people.
"Crews are working as fast as possible to restore power to customers and for many folks we spoke with they say they're being patience and they appreciate the work that's being done."
We're talking about folks like Gary Hales. His power went out last night just before he went to work. When he got home this morning, still no power.
Hales said, "I understand with the weather and all and they said it may happen with wet snow being heavy so we're patient and have the fire place going so we're ok."
Especially since Entergy officials brought additional crews up from south Louisiana to help out. Crews may not be able to restore everyone's power by tonight, but they'll be working around the clock to try and customers say they're grateful.
Hale said, "If we didn't have them guys working around the clock people would be freezing they got a job to do and they're out doing it so I'm happy."
