BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Multiple power outages in Baton Rouge left a few thousand customers in the dark for about three hours early Thursday morning.

Entergy reported several outages around 5:15 a.m.

They affected a little over 3,000 customers.

Downtown Baton Rouge was one of the areas hit.

The normally bright area was very dim due to the lack of electricity.

WAFB was even affected by the outage.

Officials said the outages were caused by transformer failure at four locations.

The customers affected by those were restored just before 8 a.m.

There were also other minor outages in the area.
