Some Entergy customers to lose power temporarily

Clay County (KAIT) -Some Entergy customers in western Clay County will be without power for a short time overnight Friday night.

Entergy spokesperson David Burnette says they will need to cut power to its customers in and around Datto and Success from 11:00 PM Friday until 2:00 AM Saturday.  About 150 customers will be in the dark for approximately three hours. 

Burnette says a thunderstorm that moved through the area Thursday damaged some equipment inside a substation.  Thursday's storm knocked power out to residents in Datto, Success, Biggers, and Reyno.  Entergy was able to reroute power from the Pocahontas substation to restore power until repairs could be made.  Those repairs will cause Friday night's planned outage.
