More than 2,500 households lost power Sunday morning in the Garden District and in the Irish Channel, according to Entergy New Orleans.

The blackout, due to a down wire, has affected customers living between St. Charles Avenue and Tchoupitoulas Street, and Delachaise Street and Felicity Street.

Entergy officials said repair crews were arriving on the scene to determine the cause. The issue, which began at 9:20 a.m., was expected to be resolved by noon.
