BATON ROUGE – About 400 people are without power in neighborhoods south of downtown Baton Rouge New Year’s Day.

The outage was reported around 6 p.m. Tuesday in several neighborhoods west of I-10, just south of the 10/110 split.

Entergy officials said the loss of electricity was brought on by a downed line, but it’s unclear at this time what caused the line to fall.

There is currently no estimate on when power might be restored to the area.
