Entergy Mississippi storm update – 6/30/23, noon
With temperatures reaching extreme highs this week, we recognize the importance of having power at your home or business. Thank you for your patience as our crews diligently worked to restore power after more rounds of severe weather swept across our service area this week. Entergy Mississippi has restored service to all customer outages that occurred during the recent storms, including those affected by the severe weather that struck our service area on Sunday, June 25 through Tuesday, June 27.
At peak, the most recent storms caused power outages for nearly 26,000 customers. Crews restored more than half of the outages within 24 hours of the weather event. Our workforce of more than 1,300 employees fought the heatwave and a second round of storms on Tuesday afternoon, safely restoring power to all customers who could receive it.
This week, crews repaired or replaced 128 damaged poles, 128,975 feet, or 24.4 miles, of downed power lines, 45 damaged cross arms and 48 damaged transformers.
If you are still without power, check for damage to the electrical equipment attached to your home or business. If your power is out and your electric equipment appears undamaged, call 1-800-9OUTAGE, 1-800-968-8243.
Please remember, Entergy restoration workers cannot restore power to a location with a damaged meter base, conduit or weather head (the metal pipe extending upward from the structure with electrical cables inside). These items must be repaired by a qualified electrician before our workers can restore power. Learn more about the electrical equipment that serves your home.
