MORGAN CITY, LA -  Chief James F. Blair and the Morgan City Police Department want to update all of the citizens on the current situation.

There are various power outages throughout the City of Morgan City. Crews have been out since day light assessing the damage to power lines so repairs can be made to restore power to the city.

Cell service for AT&T and Verizon is down. Due to these outages there is no cell service in our area. If you have WIFI at your house you may be able to restore communications.

Weather conditions are Sunny with some winds in our area.

If you evacuated and you are planning to travel home to Morgan City be prepared to be without power. Although the goal is for the city crews to restore power today it is going to take time to fix everything. Please allow city crews to work to restore everything.

Do not travel around the city sight seeing as lines are down in our area or may be hanging low. Some lines may still have power so DON"T TOUCH ANY LINES!!!!


The Morgan City Police Department"s land lines are back in service if you need to contact the police department for calls for service.
