For crews restoring power in southwest Louisiana following Hurricane Laura, backyard work presents unique challenges beyond keeping a barbecue grill hot or starting a lawn mower.
Faced with an extended restoration timeline, Entergy’s storm team developed a creative solution to accelerate the restoration of power to portions of north Lake Charles by the end of this weekend.
Crews continued restoring power to customers in Calcasieu and Cameron parishes, the areas struck hardest by Hurricane Laura.
While crews continue making progress restoring power to customers affected by Hurricane Laura, Entergy is also preparing for the potential impacts in the coming days of Tropical Storm Sally, which is forecast to move into the Gulf of Mexico. We encourage customers to prepare, too.
Entergy’s Louisiana companies are continuing to monitor and plan for the potential impacts of Tropical Storm Sally as it travels through the Gulf of Mexico over the next few days. The slow-moving system is expected to become a hurricane at landfall.
