Alexandria, La. (July 30, 2019) — Alexandria Utility Systems are currently restoring a substation power outage caused by lightning and some citizens are gettting power back. However, while we have made some repairs to restore power, we are still assessing damage. Many areas of the city are still without power.
Some low-lying areas are experiencing flash flooding. Please avoid driving through flooded streets. Residents are urged to stay off the roads if possible.
The following areas and roads are closed:
