Hurricane Zeta Restoration Update – 10/31/20 @ 8 p.m.

10/31/2020

As of 8 p.m. Halloween night, crews have successfully restored power to over 330,000 customers who lost service following Hurricane Zeta. At its peak, the storm caused more than 480,000 outages for Entergy customers in Louisiana.

Crews restored power to more than half of those affected customers just two days after the storm impacted southeast Louisiana. Additionally, the company has provided a detailed list of estimated restoration times, which can be found below or by clicking the restoration information banner on the view outages map.

Damage assessments are now complete. Our scouts have found damage to more than 2,700 poles, over 570 transformers and nearly 1,800 spans of wire.

As we continue to restore power, we want to ensure customers can accept power when it becomes available. Check for damage to the electrical equipment attached to your home or business and contact an electrician to make needed repairs. For information on your home’s electrical equipment, visit our Storm Center site. If damage has been repaired by a qualified electrician, call 1-800-ENTERGY to generate a service-reconnection work order.

Stay Safe

Customers are reminded that there is no way to know if a downed line or other electrical equipment is energized. If you see one, keep your distance and call 1-800-9OUTAGE (800-968-8243).

Those choosing to use portable electric generators should do so in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Customers must never connect a generator directly to a building’s wiring without a licensed electrician disconnecting the house wiring from Entergy’s service. Otherwise, it can create a safety hazard for the customer or our linemen working to restore power. And it may damage the generator or the house wiring.

Restoration workers who discover a generator attached directly to Entergy’s system will work with the customer to disconnect the generator. As a last resort, the restoration worker will disconnect the customer’s service connection to Entergy, which may take an extended time to reconnect due to the extensive restoration effort underway. A set of generator safety tips can be found at entergynewsroom.com/storm-center/safety/.

We urge customers to keep streets open for local emergency vehicles and workers. Additionally, crews will continue to practice social distancing and we ask customers do the same. For the safety of crews and other first responders, stay away from work zones. Customers needing assistance should call 1-800-ENTERGY.
