LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - A power line is semi-submerged in the Calcasieu River near the Old Ferry Road Boat Launch, according to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

According to Cpl. Zachery Meche, there is a downed power line in the Caclasieu River across from the Old Ferry Road Boat Launch.

Meche says the line is semi-submerged, and they have notified CLECO but they can’t do anything due to high water.
