Entergy Mississippi workers expect to have power restored to all customers who can accept it by Saturday evening.

Entergy Mississippi continues to restore power after a second wave of severe thunderstorms and high winds moved through our service area on April 18, causing numerous outages which peaked at 28,300 customers.
About 24 hours after Entergy Mississippi restored power to all customers affected by the weekend storms, more severe weather struck. Thunderstorms and heavy rains swept through much of our service territory and multiple tornado warnings were in effect over the afternoon. As of 5 p.m., about 25,000 customers were without power as a result of the latest round of storms, most of which are in Hinds County.
To offer customers the opportunity to discuss their outage directly with Entergy Mississippi representatives and provide other services, the company has opened a Customer Information Center at the Outlets of Vicksburg outlet mall.
The devastating Easter Flood of 1979 is an unforgettable part of Jackson, Mississippi’s history. The Pearl River crested and flooded the city’s downtown that April. As expected, the community rose above the devastation. And Entergy, then Mississippi Power & Light, employees were there, fighting to protect the community’s electric power supply. Now 40 years later, some of our employees and retirees still remember the damage and how they pulled together to maintain service to customers.
