After restoring electricity to the last large neighborhood tracts Sunday evening, Entergy workers spent Monday focusing on individual, block- or address-level outages, and reported more than 94 percent of customers in the city had been restored by Monday evening.

Problems still remained: transformers were blowing in the Lower Garden District on Monday morning, and a swath of Uptown around Magazine Street and Audubon Park lost power again Tuesday morning. But most Uptown neighborhoods had more than 95 percent of power restored by Monday evening, according to figures released at 9 p.m. Monday:

  1. Many of us in the LGD never lost power for even a minute. I’m glad the people getting their power back but what about the massive tree down across Colosseum St. between Josephine and St. Andrew? And the rest of the storm debris piles? It’s been a week already. Is the city supposed to send trucks? Will the state use some of their federal disaster funds for debris removal? City Hall, City Council, and our 2 garbage companies don’t know what’s going on, who’s doing what, or when it’s going to happen. I’ve called them all many times and their lack of knowledge is astounding yet not surprising.
