Our restoration workers have made great progress restoring service to customers affected by the recent severe weather. Significant damage in some areas will extend restoration for those customers. We have more than 3,000 restoration workers in the field.
The Delta region of Mississippi was hit especially hard by this morning’s storms, causing significant damage. As of Saturday evening, we have almost 400 broken poles among other damage.
Crews expect to restore power tonight to the vast majority of customers affected by a storm system that cut through Louisiana Saturday, with all remaining customers in the hardest hit areas who can take service restored by Sunday or Monday.
Significant damage in some areas will extend restoration in some areas.
Severe thunderstorms caused outages Friday night and Saturday morning throughout much of Entergy Mississippi’s service area. As of 1 p.m., about 32,000 customers are without power.
Entergy crews are assessing damage and restoring power as quickly and safely as possible.
As predicted, severe weather continues pushing to the east today through the Entergy service territory. Restoration is underway.
