SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

Most of the Sulphur-area Entergy customers who lost power in a widespread outage on late Sunday afternoon have had their power restored, as of early Sunday evening.

The outage, which affected thousands of customers, was caused by the failure of a transmission line that feeds into a substation, which itself feeds into the power lines of a large number of Sulphur-area customers, said Chip Arnould, Sr. Manager of Customer Service at Entergy.

The exact cause of the transmission line outage is unknown, said Arnould.
