NEW ORLEANS — A power outage disrupted traffic lights, causing a nightmare for drivers in New Orleans Central Business District Monday morning.
According to the Entergy New Orleans outage map, the outages are concentrated along Julia Street between Baronne Street and the Convention Center Boulevard.
The company did not say what caused the outage, but its website said power is expected to be restored to the area by 10 a.m.
Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area if possible.
The New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board said the power outage has caused all of its servers to go offline. The agency says that both East Bank and West Bank customer service centers are closed and hearings will be rescheduled. There will also be no water shut-offs Monday, the S&WB said.
