Stormy weather producing thunderstorms, heavy rain, hail, lightning and tornadoes struck Entergy Mississippi’s service area late Wednesday, causing scattered outages from Attala County to the Mississippi/Louisiana state line. About 1,673 customers remain without power, down from a peak of approximately 8,500.
The stormy weather has left our service territory. Restoration continues for those customers whose power was disrupted by the storms.
Our workforce is already restoring service where it is safe to do so in areas where the storms have passed.
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.
Entergy’s Louisiana companies are closely monitoring weather forecasts and preparing to respond to severe weather that may impact our area later this afternoon through this evening.
Entergy Mississippi is preparing to respond to severe weather predicted to strike our service area starting later today. The severe weather could include tornadoes, hail, damaging winds, flash flooding and lightning.
We have assembled and organized our workforce needed to restore service safely and quickly to our customers and will adjust our plans as needed to restore outages caused by these storms.
As part of our preparations, we continue incorporating needed precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
