Lafayette Utilities System Director Terry Huval tells KATC that power has been restored to about 40 customers whose services were knocked out by a bird that contacted a live conductor.
The affected area of the outage was near the intersection of Beadle Rd. and Verot School Rd.
The bird unfortunately perished in the incident that occurred about 6:40 p.m. and left select utility customers without power for about an hour.
