Hurricane Ida Updates
Some heroes wear capes. Some wear work gloves and safety glasses. Most just want to do a good deed for those in need, often because someone else once extended them a helping hand. David Rose, an analyst in Entergy Mississippi’s economic development department, will tell you he’s no hero. Erica Jackson, a senior project manager at Entergy, may beg to differ.
Crews supporting Entergy Louisiana’s restoration efforts following historic Hurricane Ida are continuing to repair, rebuild and strengthen the electric system in hard-hit coastal communities like Port Fourchon and Grand Isle.
After Hurricane Ida’s high Category 4 winds impacted southeast Louisiana and commanding the largest restoration workforce in company history, Entergy Louisiana, LLC has made power available to nearly all customers who can safely receive it outside some water routes and the hardest hit areas of Port Fourchon and Grand Isle.
When Hurricane Ida’s catastrophic and damaging winds left more than 900,000 customers without power across southeast Louisiana, Entergy Gas customers in New Orleans and Baton Rouge were able to use an alternative means to power their needs.
