Crews expect to restore power by tonight to the majority of customers still without electricity in areas struck hardest by the violent storm system that swept across Louisiana Saturday.
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.
What may have been an upsetting loss for New Orleans Saints fans turned out to be a weekend to remember for senior lineman Wayne Kamm who was recognized as Entergy’s Lineman of the Game during the Saints v. Atlanta Falcons match-up.
Crews have restored power to more than 79,000 of the customers affected by the remnants of Tropical Storm Olga that hit Louisiana Saturday.
As of 8 a.m. Sunday, power had been restored to approximately 66,000 of the 92,000 customers affected by the storm that caused significant damage to Entergy infrastructure, largely in southeast Louisiana. The New Orleans metro area and Hammond areas were hit the hardest by the storm that downed trees and damaged more than 150 poles.
Crews have made progress, reducing a Saturday morning peak of 92,000 customer outages to 31,000 — a more than 60% decrease — by 7 p.m.
If there were a NASCAR event based on running the cleanest vehicles, Entergy would be on the leader board, helping the Greater New Orleans community capture a green checkered flag.

Soon, the fragrant smell of magnolia blossoms and other spring flowers will be in the air. While that’s something we look forward to here in the Bayou State, it also comes with the potential for severe weather.
