Customers should winterize homes and prepare for higher energy usage.
Entergy Arkansas is staging crews, equipment and supplies in areas of the state likely to be the hardest hit later this week based on a forecast for bitter cold, sustained winds, sleet, freezing rain, snow and ice accumulations.
After last year’s record-breaking winter, Entergy New Orleans remains focused on preparing for what Mother Nature may bring when the weather turns colder. And, while weather can be unpredictable, the company remains storm ready no matter the season.
The company is monitoring the weather, and customers should too.
Just over 2,000 Entergy Arkansas customers remain without power following a winter storm Saturday. This is down from 6,194 outages at the peak at 4 p.m. yesterday.
Heavy, wet snow is bringing trees down onto power lines, and additional snowfall and icy conditions are making travel treacherous through the northern parts of Arkansas.
Recognizing the hard work and dedication of Entergy employees, the Edison Electric Institute today awarded Entergy Corporation with its Emergency Response Award for the company's recovery efforts following Hurricane Ida in August 2021.
The majority of customers who can take power from the severe storms and tornadoes Friday night have been restored.
