Safety is an Entergy key value and always comes first. When restoring power, we have a specific process we follow to safely restore all customers. First, we restore power to critical community infrastructure and essential services such as hospitals, water treatment plants, police and fire stations, and communication systems. Then, we will concentrate our resources on what gets the greatest number of customers restored the fastest.

Throughout the day Entergy workers are still replacing wires and broken poles that were torn down from the storm.

We apologize for the inconvenience and are working as quickly as safety allows. Any customers without power in this area should inspect their electrical facilities on their home or business and, if damaged, contact a licensed electrician to make the necessary repairs, if no damage is evident, please report your outage to Entergy.  We apologize for the inconvenience and are working as quickly as safely possible.
