BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - BREC's Baton Rouge Zoo is back open after some heavy storms cause problems, including power outages.

Rain and wind didn't just knock out power to the park, but also dropped a ton of debris.

There were 60 crews working all day Wednesday to get everything cleaned up.

The power is back on and the zoo reopened its gates at 9:30 a.m.
