Entergy Mississippi is preparing to respond to severe weather predicted to strike our service area starting later today. The severe weather could include tornadoes, hail, damaging winds, flash flooding and lightning.
We have assembled and organized our workforce needed to restore service safely and quickly to our customers and will adjust our plans as needed to restore outages caused by these storms.
As part of our preparations, we continue incorporating needed precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Entergy Mississippi has restored power for all customers whose service was disrupted when a winter storm swept through our service area Wednesday, Feb. 17, causing about 90,000 outages at peak.
As of 9:30 a.m., about 1,000 customers remain without power, down from a peak of about 90,000.

Both Entergy Mississippi crews and additional workers are restoring power as quickly and safely as possible. We expect the majority of customers will be restored this afternoon.
