Did you know that heating your home uses more energy than cooling it? While extreme cold weather is rare in our region, a deep cold snap will impact your energy usage and may impact your bill.
Entergy’s Louisiana storm team, now 3,600 strong, is continuing to assess damages to the electric system and restore power where it is safe to do so. Multiple winter storms brought damaging freezing rain and ice to the state.
A mix of ice and snow continues pushing through our service territory, causing new power outages for our customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
Entergy Texas expects most customers to be restored by end of day, Thursday (2/18).
Another round of icy winter weather swept through Entergy Mississippi’s service area last night, causing additional power outages and widespread damage. We have not experienced a winter storm of this magnitude in over 25 years. As of 7:30 a.m., nearly 90,000 customers are without power. The weather affected the central portion of our territory from Hwy 84 in the south up to Hwy 82 in the north. We currently have 49 substation circuit breakers out of service.
As a result of customer conservation, the system was successfully able to avoid mandatory outages. Keep up the good work!
As of 8 pm, there are approximately 19,380 customers without power, down from 33,657 at 3 p.m.
As of 8 p.m. nearly 58,000 customers are without power due to the ongoing ice storm. Most outages are north of a line from Natchez to Brookhaven up to the Jackson metro area and north of Madison and Canton toward Kosciusko.
