Power outage affects several Gonzales residents during cold weather

GONZALES, LA (WAFB) - The freezing weather had nearly 200 people in Ascension Parish without power today.

This mainly affected homes off of West Worthy St. in Gonzales, La. An Entergy spokesman said the power outage happened around 7pm Monday night. Leaving residents were without heat during severe weather conditions. Gonzales resident Jonathan Tilman hopes this problem can be resolved sooner than later.

"I have a wife and three kids at home, and I am concerned about them. I know I will be alright, but my family shouldn't have to question if they are alright or not," said Tilman.

"I pay money to have my lights on, and if I don't pay it they are going to cut them off. I paid my bill so I expect for my lights to be on," Tilman continued.

At last check, Entergy's website says power has been restored to the area.
