LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - KPLC viewers throughout SWLA reported Suddenlink outages Tuesday.

Suddenlink representative Ashwin Bhandari says the outage was due to a “commercial power outage in Lake Charles.” However, power has been restored, and services are beginning to come back online, Bhandari says.

The website, downdetector.com, which tracks internet outages, shows outages in Lake Charles and Sulphur.

Entergy says they did have a power outage caused by a tree that fell on power lines on W. Prien Lake Road, but that the power outage was localized to that area. The fallen tree caused around 2,300 outages around W. Prien and Nelson roads. Power was quickly restored to around 2,100 customers, Entergy representatives say. The rest of the outages in the area were restored by 2 p.m.
