Cat in Louisiana Causes Power Outage for Over 7,500 People

A cat in Louisiana reportedly cut power to more than 7,500 people when it snuck into a substation early Monday.

Entergy New Orleans tweeted around 9:30 a.m. the cat “got into a substation that feeds parts of Uptown, Central City, Mid-City, and the [Central Business District] and caused a flash when it came into contact with [their] equipment.”

Power was restored to customers hours later, around 11:30 a.m., the company said.

The cat, which did not survive the incident, wasn’t the first animal to find its way into a substation, but it was “unusual,” Entergy said.
