WSTE assessing damage to power system

Published 11:21 am Monday, August 30, 2021

Washington St. Tammany Electric Cooperative is currently assessing the damage to the WST system, caused by Hurricane Ida.

Once assessment is complete, WST and its storm restoration crews can begin to implement the restoration plan. Outages are extensive. While any members’ power could be restored sooner, members in the hardest hit areas will be without power for several days to weeks.

Please assume that all low or downed power lines are live, and stay away from them.

To report an outage call 14-866-672-9773 or use the free SmartHub app.

Thank you for your patience as we work strategically and safely to restore your power.
