BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The widespread power outages caused by Hurricane Isaac have nearly all been repaired.
The Public Service Commission says nearly 38,000 homes and businesses remained without electricity Tuesday. That's about 2 percent of customers.
The largest remaining outages were in the two parishes hardest-hit by Isaac's flooding: Plaquemines and St. John the Baptist parishes. Plaquemines had 47 percent of its utility customers without power, and St. John had 25 percent waiting to be restored, according to the PSC data.
The other area with a large number of outages was Jefferson Parish, where 7 percent of homes and businesses - or about 15,000 customers - were without power Tuesday.
At its worst, Isaac knocked out power to more than 900,000 utility customers, approaching half the state.
