Strong Storms Knock Power Out Across Shreveport-Bossier

Winter has arrived in the Arklatex with a vengeance. Strong winds and some heavy rains moved in overnight. The big problem is power.

Swepco crews have been working all morning to get the power restored. As of 6:30 this morning, more than 11,000 Bossier Parish customers are without power. Close to 20,000 are without power in Caddo Parish. Across the Arklatex, more than 60,000 Swepco customers have no power this morning.

In West Shreveport, the Walmart has been closed for several hours because of the power outage. You really can’t even see the store from the parking lot. All of the lights on the exterior of the store are off. Only a few lights inside the store are on and the doors are locked. I also spotted a tree down on Klug Pines next to the Walmart.
