Gordon Weakens to Depression as it Heads North


Tropical Storm Gordon made landfall on the Alabama coast about 9 p.m. Tuesday. The effects thus far on our customers are minimal, but the potential for heavy rains and flooding still exists in Mississippi. There is no threat to Entergy New Orleans customers. We want to thank our customers for your patience and diligence while monitoring the storm activity and being fully prepared.

Although Gordon weakened to a tropical depression as it moved across Mississippi today, it still has the potential to bring heavy rain and winds to parts of Northeast Louisiana. It is expected to move into Arkansas tonight through early Friday, where several inches of rain could cause flooding.

We continue monitoring this storm and remain prepared to respond to any power outages.
