LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Power has been restored to Ryan Street and the surrounding areas.

A power outage had left traffic lights out on Ryan Street- from Prien Lake Road to McNeese Street. Around 800 were without power. The outage also affected some streets off of Ryan and Prien Lake Road.

Entergy spokesman Chip Arnould said crews were unable to identify the cause of the problem, but an assessment found no immediate damage and crews were able to restore power.
