They are at the top of their game when electrifying the grid. Now, they’ve shown they can electrify the gridiron, too. “They” are Entergy’s 2019 Linemen of the Game, chosen for their commitment and dedication to Entergy, our customers, our communities and above all—safety.
All customers that can accept electrical service safely have been restored and crews continue restoring power to customers impacted by weekend thunderstorms and tornadoes.
As of noon today, outages have been reduced from the peak of more than 42,800 outages to 2,653 outages.
It is estimated that 95% percent of the affected customers will be restored by 10:00 p.m. tonight.
A line of severe thunderstorms with straight line winds has moved through Entergy’s service area causing approximately 54,500 outages across the state.
Entergy crews are assessing damage and restoring power as quickly and safely as possible.
We are prepared and encourage you to finalize your preparations as well.
Entergy was well-represented at the Special Olympics softball tournament at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway in November.
