BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

According to Georgia-Pacific representative Patty Prats-Swanson, the source of the loud noise being heard by residents in north East Baton Rouge Parish Monday night is due to the plant venting steam. 

Prats-Swanson said the plant has experienced some extended power outages, which creates the need for the venting. 

While there is no public risk, the spokeswoman said it could last for several more hours. Officials are not sure when power will be restored.
