In continuing its efforts to help Baton Rouge customers and community partners recover from last year’s devastating floods, Entergy has awarded grants totaling $225,000 to two nonprofits.
Entergy Corporation has contributed $300,000 to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation’s Louisiana Flood Relief Fund, which will be granted by the Foundation to local nonprofits that are responding to the biggest rainstorm in modern Louisiana history.
Power has been restored to all of the customers who can safely receive it. Some houses are still underwater in the St. Amant, Sorrento and False River areas, and it may take some time to re-energize an estimated 2,000 customers whose flood damage was so severe they cannot yet be re-connected. Entergy will continue working with these customers on an individual basis until their power can be restored.
Process for restoration to flooded homes outlined
Entergy Louisiana crews continue to work on restoring service to customers affected by the historic Louisiana flooding as water recedes in some areas.
Entergy Louisiana crews expect to restore power to all customers who can accept it by Monday night, but floodwaters are continuing to restrict restoration efforts to thousands of homes and businesses in the hardest hit areas of south Louisiana.
