PLAQUEMINE, LA (WAFB) -

Officials at Entergy say they will cut the power to the city of Plaquemine for roughly six hours Thursday night.

According to a news release, the power outage will begin at 11 p.m. and will continue through the morning until roughly 5 a.m.

"The outage could last anywhere from three to six hours. On a good scenario, three hours if everything goes properly up to six hours if we find a few issues that occur," said Greg Guilbeau with Entergy. 

Officials said the outage is due to the need to repair a hot spot switch on the substation that feeds all of Plaquemine.
