I was picking blackberries down on my Jackson Parish hunting club earlier this year when I heard a familiar bird call that caught my attention. I was transported back to the time when I was a barefoot, tow-headed boy and I remember watching my mom tilt her head when she heard the call of this particular species of bird, one she hadn’t heard before.

Approximately 1,400 Lincoln Parish utility customers were still without electricity this morning, as a result of unexpected straight-line winds that whipped across much of North Central Louisiana Thursday night.

Gusts of up to 70 mph caused downed trees and power lines. Limbs and other debris falling into the lines caused most of the outages, spokespeople for area electric utilities said.

“The high wind and lighting kind of did a number on us,” Roderick Worthy, customer service manager with Entergy, said this morning.
