SUMMARY: A homeowner in Baton Rouge experienced a torn-up yard and a smashed car when a downed powerline caused a tree to fall. The homeowner, Lynetta Rahman Davis, initially called Entergy to report the tree branch entangled with a power line in her front yard. Despite Entergy’s first visit to cut the tree, the outages continued due to remaining branches. Another crew came and cut a few twigs, but two days later the tree fell, damaging Rahman Davis’s new car.
