JD Bank's main branch regains power

Employees at Jeff Davis Bank's main branch in Jennings shouted "Hallelujah" as main power returned at about 1:50 p.m. on Tuesday.

Nancy Hayes, who works for the bank's president, said the bank had been on generator power for days. She said the bank's power is connected to the Jennings American Legion Hospital.

Employees were able to access accounts and other financial information. Hayes said the Kinder branch was open, but the McNeese branch had been damaged. She said with power back, employees were ready to head west to examine other branches.

Thanks for the news updates. I am a Sulphur resident. I am currently staying in Tyler, Texas with my son. Your daily reports are the only source I have for local information from Lake Charles. Thanks for enduring the hardships to keep displaced people up to date on whats going on there.
