Crews Make Significant Progress on Louisiana Restoration

07/15/2019

Despite flooding and accessibility issues in some of the hardest-hit areas, a workforce of some 4,000 has made significant progress in restoring 304,175 Entergy Louisiana customer outages following Hurricane Barry. As of 8:30 p.m. Monday, approximately 7,000 customers remained without power in Louisiana, mainly concentrated in the Greater Baton Rouge area, as well as Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes.

In Baton Rouge, crews made headway working around the challenge of repairing damage to electrical equipment in residential backyards, which normally takes more time due to access issues and saturated soil. We expect the vast majority of customers to be restored on Tuesday.

If you don’t see us working near you, keep in mind that we may be working on another part of the system that you can’t see but that is needed to get the lights back on. As we continue to restore service, we will reassign crews to areas still without power.

Customers in Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes may visit our mobile Customer Information Center at Ellender Memorial High School southside parking lot, 3012 Patriot Dr. in Houma, La. from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday.
