As the Arkansas River reaches record high levels this week, Entergy Arkansas is responding with measures to protect both people and equipment in flooded areas along the river.
We expect the majority of customers will be restored today. Restoration for some will be tomorrow, due to winter storm conditions affecting our workers’ ability to safely travel to outage locations.
The potential for wet snow and ice in parts of Arkansas and northern regions of Louisiana and Mississippi has Entergy crews completing winter weather preparations. We encourage our customers to also implement their winter weather family plans.
Extremely cold temperatures have hit Arkansas. While there has been no significant precipitation in the Entergy Arkansas territory, cold weather alone can lead to power outages, some of which may take longer to restore than normal.
Arkansas was hit by a round of severe weather overnight Saturday, May 27. The storm caused damage to the electrical system and outages statewide.
Crews spread across the state have restored power to more than 85 percent of the peak of 71,000 Entergy Arkansas customers hit by severe weather over the weekend.
