Lafayette, LA– Lafayette Utilities System has begun restoration efforts to customers affected by Hurricane Laura.

Our restoration process begins with repairs of transmission lines and substations, then work moves to main lines that serve critical facilities such as hospitals and then transformers that feed our residential customers. LUS and mutual aid crews will work to restore services to the greatest number of customers as soon as possible.

Currently at 1:30 p.m., approximately 9,500 LUS customers are without power.

An additional 60 mutual aid linemen and tree trimmers are arriving this afternoon from Alabama and Florida to support our efforts in restoring power to Lafayette.

To report an outage, call LUS at (337) 291-9200 or for downed power lines or power poles, call LUS at (337) 291-5700. Remember do not touch or drive over any fallen power lines.
