Belated commuter warning: At 8 a.m. this morning they still haven't cleared that tree from Kavanaugh Boulevard in the stretch of the Hillcrest promenade. Traffic was being diverted to Woodlawn for that short stretch. I noticed some businesses along Kavanaugh still lack power, too.
UPDATE: The power outages are widespread. Here's a look at Entergy problems statewide. A friend in Hillcrest said he'd just learned his home wouldn't have power restored until Sunday.
