Power has been knocked out to approximately 58,000 customers as of 10:30 a.m. Saturday as Hurricane Barry moves over the Louisiana coast.
Entergy’s Louisiana utilities continue to monitor Tropical Storm Barry and are preparing for potential impact to the state. A team of more than 1200 crew members have been assembled to respond to the storm, and an additional 770 workers from other neighboring Entergy utilities have been mobilized to assist with restoration in Louisiana. Entergy also can call in additional crews to assist pending the path and intensity of the storm.

Though the storm is currently poorly organized, Entergy Louisiana is prepared for the possibility that this weather system could bring severe thunderstorms, strong winds, heavy rains, higher tides and coastal flooding to the state.

When it’s hot outside, we want it cool inside. But trying to keep your cool in the dog days of summer can take a chunk of change out of your pocketbook.

After all, air conditioning and heating account for as much as half of your monthly bill.
