Nearly 4,000 AEP customers are in the dark this morning.

Bossier Parish has just under 1,000 powerless.  That number has gone down dramatically since 10pm last night.

Caddo Parish has nearly 3,000 without power.


Thousands of people from North Bossier to Benton are without power after a transmission line failed shortly after 9:00 Thursday night.

A SWEPCO spokesman told KTBS 3 News that a major transmission line failed, cutting off three power substations in Bossier Parish. SWEPCO had no information about a possible cause as of 10:00 Thursday night. There is also no word on when power will be restored.
