A message went out just after 6am Monday (9/25/23) to parents of Caddo Parish Public School students stating schools were closed today due to multiple power outages. Storms roared through the area late Sunday night knocking out power to nearly 29,000 Swepco customers.

Swepco workers are doing their best to fix the issues at hand and get people back up and running.

The storm came through late Sunday night, boasting heavy winds and loads of lightning. As of now, many homes and businesses are out of power and won't be operational until things are fixed.

Many of the area outages are due to limbs on power lines. If you have a downed power line near your home, DO NOT go near it. Call Swepco, and they will come and safely take care of the issue.

ALL Caddo Parish Schools are closed today (9/25/23)
