About 115,000 homes and businesses in Acadiana were without power as Hurricane Laura continued to push north early Thursday morning.
As of 4 a.m. Thursday, the high winds and rain from Laura caused widespread power outages in the state, with moreÂ than 269,000 power customers without electricity three hours after Laura made landfall near Lake Charles and began tracking north.
Additional utility crews from across the South have poured into southern Louisiana in recent days in preparation for Laura’s impact on power lines and the state’s electrical grid.
