As floodwaters recede, Entergy Texas, Inc. will be able to access transmission lines and substations that were once under water. This will allow crews to assess the damage to the system and what it will take to restore power to thousands of customers.
Entergy has restored more than 200,000 outages caused by multiple landfalls Harvey made since its arrival one week ago. The storm has now caused outages in all of our service territories with its sweep through Arkansas and Mississippi over the last 24 hours.
Flooding is significantly impacting Entergy Texas’ ability to restore power to customers in some areas. Several substations that distribute electric service to many customers over large areas are experiencing outages due to flooding. In addition, multiple transmission lines that feed areas are also affected.
