7:20 AM UPDATE
At roughly 7:10 this morning, LPEA's Purgatory substation lost power, causing an outage to 1,400 members in the area. Crews immediately reported to the scene to assess the issue and restore power. Given that this outage originated at the substation, restoration is more complicated and will take more time. Crews will continue working until all power is restored.
