City Slowly Recovers From Outages

Posted: Updated:

MORGAN CITY, La. – Over 20 hours later, the power is back on for most of Morgan City.

Thousands of people woke up in the dark in early Wednesday after an explosion at the city's main power plant.

The fire at the plant is out, but it could be days before residents get their power back, which means no air conditioning during the recent hot weather.

The city's mayor has declared a state of emergency and residents will have to abide by a dusk to dawn curfew until the problem is resolved.

Residents have been told to conserve water wisely because the sewer stations aren't working.
