Power restored after Demco outage

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The lights are back on for more than 23,000 Demco customers affected by a power outage Sunday night. As of 10:45 pm, only 73 customers were still without power. 

According to Demco's Outage website, Livingston Parish had the highest concentration of affected customers.

Demco spokesman David Latona says the outage was caused by a transmission issue between two substations. Latona said crews had to switch over a big portion of that power load to a different location.
