Entergy Arkansas storm update – 6/30/23, 9 a.m.


Entergy Arkansas values you as a customer and strives to provide you with premier service. As we finalize restoration efforts, we thank you for your continued patience. Cooling centers are available for customers in need of relief from daytime heat.

Over 62,000 customers lost power at the peak of the storm Sunday afternoon, June 25. More than 561 utility poles, 205 transformers and 1,032 spans of wire were damaged or destroyed.

Entergy continues to position additional resources to restore remaining outages as quickly and safely as possible. Currently, there are approximately 1,000 customers without power. We anticipate most customers without power who can safely receive it will have it restored by 10 p.m.

If you are still without power, check for damages to the electrical equipment attached to your home or business. If the service line to your home or business has been damaged by this storm, you may have damage to your meter base. If it is damaged, you may need to have an electrician make repairs as well as a permit before Entergy Arkansas can safely reconnect service. Please contact us at 1-800-ENTERGY if you have additional questions or for reconnection after repairs have been completed. Follow this link to learn more about the electrical equipment that serves your home. 

If you have no damages and your neighbors have power, please report that you are still out by calling 1-800-9OUTAGE (1-800-968-8243).

Key Messages:

  • Portions of our service area are experiencing dangerously high temperatures. If you're without power, wear loose, lightweight clothing to help prevent heat-related illness. For more tips, visit
  • For customers continuing to experience outages, it’s important to know how to keep your food safe. Discard perishable food that has been above 40 F for two hours or more. Learn more by visiting

Safety is our number one priority. If you are without power, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Stay away from downed power lines and assume they are energized.
  • Report a power outage on the myEntergy site or call 1-800-9OUTAGE. There is no need to speak with a customer service representative to report an outage if completed online.
  • If you have a portable generator, use it safely. DO NOT run it in an enclosed space. If connecting the generator to the whole house, do so only if the connection has been installed by a licensed electrician to prevent back feed on to the distribution system.
  • Do not open your refrigerator or freezer door. Food will stay cold much longer this way. If outside temperature is below freezing, consider placing food in an ice chest outside.
  • Please stay clear of linemen as they work to safely restore power.

We understand the extreme heat during this time. To protect yourself and your families, follow these recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Drink fluids, even if you don't feel thirsty.
  • Wear loose, lightweight clothing and a hat.
  • Replace salt lost from sweating by drinking fruit juice or sports drinks.
  • Avoid spending time outdoors during the hottest part of the day, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Wear sunscreen: a sunburn affects the body's ability to cool itself.
  • Air conditioning is the best way to cool off; if you are using a generator, do so safely.
  • Check on seniors, who can be particularly susceptible to extreme temperatures.
