WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. (KAIT) - Nearly 3,000 Entergy Arkansas customers in the Hoxie and Walnut Ridge areas were without power Saturday afternoon due to an outage, the utility said on its website.

The outage was reported around 4:40 p.m. Saturday.

The posting did not mention what caused the outage, but that officials expect the power to be restored by 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

According to Hoxie Mayor Dennis Coggins, crews are on the scene working on the issue.

Coggins said the area had a power outage earlier this week due to a relay switch issue, which may have been caused by a lightning strike.
