Crews expect to make power available to most customers affected by Hurricane Laura by Sept. 23. They expect to restore power to the remaining customers who can safely receive it by Sept. 30.
Faced with an extended restoration timeline, Entergy’s storm team developed a creative solution to accelerate the restoration of power to portions of north Lake Charles by the end of this weekend.
Approximately 8,700 workers remain focused on restoration efforts in Southwest Louisiana.
Crews continued restoring power to customers in Calcasieu and Cameron parishes, the areas struck hardest by Hurricane Laura.
While crews continue making progress restoring power to customers affected by Hurricane Laura, Entergy is also preparing for the potential impacts in the coming days of Tropical Storm Sally, which is forecast to move into the Gulf of Mexico. We encourage customers to prepare, too.
