City of Minden in the black Sunday morning

Main Entergy feed goes out; power restored within an hour

The entire city of Minden was in the dark for about an hour Sunday morning, but church services continued and restaurants were serving Sunday lunch well before the noon hour.
Public Works Director George Rolfe said at this point, there is nothing on which he can pin the outage.

"We had an issue with the substation and an issue with the feed," Rolfe said. "When I talked to the workers, they were working at the substation and they said the tie went black."
The City of Minden's power comes from AEP SWEPCO, but it feeds through an Entergy substation in Gilark, according to Rolfe.
