As storms move across the state, heavy winds can knock down trees and power lines. Stay away from these areas, and report any downed lines as soon as possible. Prepare for potential power outages.
As of 8 a.m., there are approximately 690 customers without power. Cold weather continues today as temperatures are expected to remain at or below freezing until Saturday.
Another brutally cold night is in store. Bundle up and conserve power, if you can.
As a result of customer conservation, the system was successfully able to avoid mandatory outages. Keep up the good work!
MISO has issued a public appeal for conservation across the Entergy region from 5 – 10 pm tonight.
Entergy Arkansas is asking all customers – including residential, commercial and industrial – to decrease their electrical usage from 5 to 10 p.m., due to direction from reliability coordinator Midcontinent Independent System Operator regarding critical power shortages.
Mandatory rolling outages took place last night about two hours and affected approximately 60,000 customers across the state, who experienced temporary outages ranging between 11 to 45 minutes.
More ice, sleet and snow could be arriving in Arkansas. Be prepared - again!
