Twelve thousand people are without power tonight after two of Morgan City's internal operating generators went out.

According to Mayor Tim Matte, the city lost power around 4:00 p.m. this afternoon.

One week ago a transformer at the city's main power plant exploded and caught fire, leaving residents in the dark for over a day.

Tonight, city leaders are working to get the power back on. They say it could be restored at 7:00 p.m. at the earliest.
