Cleco power completes Ike restoration
3 days after Hurricane Ike made landfall, Cleco power completed its restoration effort. Approximately 500 customers suffered flood damage and will be reconnected as the water recedes.
In total, more than 80,000 customers lost power due to Ike although no more than 23,800 were out at any particular time. More than 3,000 employees, utility crews and contractors worked on the restoration effort.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
