Entergy: More than 2,000 customers without power
VIDOR-By: Leslie Rangel
A spokeswoman for Entergy reports more than two thousand customers in Vidor are once again without power.
The utility had restored service earlier today but the spokeswoman says a downed line tonight is to blame for the new outage.
The utility is also blaming freezing temperatures for causing equipment problems.
This morning one homeowner showed us how she was coping with the on again off again problem.
No snow storms here, just cold temperatures.
For Janice Shuff, the temperatures were enough to cause her power to go out.
"The electricity kept going off and on off and on every ten to 15 seconds it would go off," Shuff explains.
She was never completely without power, her lights began flickering at about six Monday morning.
"It got cold a little bit, but if I figured if I just keep my house coat on, it'll come back on and then breakfast was late but it's ok," Shuff said.
Her power is back on, for now.
"I see the lights going dim and coming out cause I'm watching those three bulbs from there and I know they will do it and when it does that, it's not a good thing," Shuff says.
She's just hoping it stays on long enough to finish her roast.
"It's just now starting to cook because the electricity just came back on," Shuff said.
The result of cold temperatures that delayed her meal and left her home a bit chillier than she would have liked.
A spokeswoman for Entergy told us it had restored power to all customers by about 1:30 this afternoon, but again, some customers tell us they are once again without power.
