Entergy crews and additional resource workers have made significant progress restoring power to the nearly 52,000 customers who lost power Saturday as a result of Hurricane Delta. As of 7 a.m., 93% of customers have been restored with around 3,600 customers remaining without power.  We continue safely restoring power, while practicing social distancing measures needed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We expect customers in Lincoln and Pike counties who can safely accept power to be restored by tonight. Customers in Adams, Amite, Franklin and Wilkinson counties should be restored by Tuesday evening.

Please continue to respect our utility workers by providing them with the space needed to complete restoration work as we consider the extra measures that are being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Due to the additional measures the crews must take, restoration may take longer, especially where there are widespread outages. If you need to report a problem with your service or get bill payment help, we’re just a phone call away: 1-800-ENTERGY.

As with any weather event, please be mindful of the following safety tips:

  • Live wires can be deadly. Stay away from downed power lines. Call 1-800-9OUTAGE or 1-800-968-8243 to report downed or dangling power lines, poles or other damaged equipment.
  • Do not trim trees or remove debris on or near downed power lines. Only power company crews or their contractors should remove trees or limbs touching power lines.
  • Keep away from the immediate areas where crews are working. There is always the danger of moving equipment and the possibility of construction materials or limbs or overhead wires falling to the ground.
  • If you plan on using a generator for temporary power, get a licensed electrician and disconnect from the utility electric system before hooking up to your home main electric panel. 
  • Do not run a generator in a confined space without adequate ventilation.
  • Avoid using candles or other flammable devices to warm your home. 
  • Check on seniors, who can be particularly susceptible to extreme temperatures. 
  • Try to stay off the roads in affected areas. More traffic in bad weather leads to more accidents, including more injuries and fatalities as well as accidents that can damage electrical poles and other equipment, creating outages and impeding the ability of crews to access and repair damage and slowing restoration.
  • We want to keep you informed and in control so here is the best way to get information about outages in addition to the View Outage application:
