The city of Plaquemine will be without power overnight Thursday due to repairs made by Entergy, city spokesperson Ellie Hebert said.

Power will be cut on Thursday, August 4 from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Friday, August 5 to repair a switch on a Entergy substation that feeds all of Plaquemine.

“This is NOT a City of Plaquemine Utilities outage.  This is an Entergy outage,” the city said in a statement on Wednesday warning of the outage.  Emergency calls can still be made to 911.
