As of 7 a.m., about 55,000 Entergy Mississippi customers remain without power as a result of Wednesday’s winter weather, down from a peak of approximately 90,000. We have brought in more resources and, along with our own workforce, more than 1,800 lineworkers, vegetation workers, damage assessors and support personnel are restoring power as quickly and safely as possible.
Ice accumulation on trees and power lines from Wednesday’s wave of winter weather continue causing significant power outages for customers across Entergy Mississippi’s service territory. Our restoration efforts continue, as the demand for electricity is growing. We will restore service to our customers as safely and quickly as possible. However, restoration will take a few days.
Another round of icy winter weather swept through Entergy Mississippi’s service area last night, causing additional power outages and widespread damage.

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.
