Entergy is canceling a series of outages planned for New Orleans this week because of the extreme heat.
Customers in Uptown and Mid-City were angered to hear power would be cut off for six hours on Monday, when temperatures reached the upper 90s.
Entergy had notified them that their power would be off between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. for needed repairs.
The utility had planned 18 outages for upgrades and repairs this week.
