Company makes progress; currently does not expect to call for customer interruptions
Nearly 48,000 customers lost power due to Hurricane Laura, as trees toppled onto power lines and heavy winds caused damage to power poles and electrical equipment. More than half were restored by Friday afternoon, and the company expects 98% of customers who can take power will be restored by Sunday evening.
Customers asked to conserve electricity.
Members of Entergy’s storm team are assessing damages and restoring power where it is safe to do so after Hurricane Laura made landfall Thursday near Cameron as a catastrophic Category 4 hurricane, causing widespread damage to Entergy’s electrical system and knocking out power to customers across Louisiana and east Texas.
Customers in hardest-hit areas should prepare for possibility of extended power outages.
