As a result of customer conservation, the system was successfully able to avoid mandatory outages. Keep up the good work!
As of 8 pm, there are approximately 19,380 customers without power, down from 33,657 at 3 p.m.
As of 8 p.m. nearly 58,000 customers are without power due to the ongoing ice storm. Most outages are north of a line from Natchez to Brookhaven up to the Jackson metro area and north of Madison and Canton toward Kosciusko.
Crews continued to make progress restoring power to customers in south Louisiana Wednesday as central and north Louisiana began seeing the impacts of a second winter storm in less than a week.
Continue to conserve, where safely possible.
MISO has issued a public appeal for conservation across the Entergy region from 5 – 10 pm tonight.
Entergy Arkansas is asking all customers – including residential, commercial and industrial – to decrease their electrical usage from 5 to 10 p.m., due to direction from reliability coordinator Midcontinent Independent System Operator regarding critical power shortages.
While restoration continues for customers affected by winter storms earlier this week, another winter weather front is expected to affect Entergy Mississippi’s service area today into the evening.
The latest winter storm is affecting power delivery to our customers in all four states of our territory.
