As the winter storm bears down on Arkansas, 900 restoration workers have arrived to assist our crews in responding to outages quickly and safely should they occur.
Entergy Arkansas is ready for the winter storm that is moving across the state, which could cause extensive power outages.
Forecasts call for rain, freezing rain and sleet over a large portion of the state in the next 48 hours, and Entergy Arkansas is prepping for potential outages.
