Severe weather causes multiple power outages in southern Jefferson Parish, delays Tarpon Rodeo


Severe weather that moved through Saturday evening left many in the Golden Meadow and Grand Isle communities in the dark. The power outage also caused a delay for the annual Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo.

An Entergy official says that workers are out working to provide alternative power sources for the residents. The official added that crews hope to have the power sources up and running by late Saturday night. 

Jefferson Parish officials say that the rodeo's award ceremony and prize drawing has been postponed Saturday night and will be rescheduled at a later date and time. The new date and time will be announced on the International Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo's Facebook page, according to officials.
