Crews expect to restore power by tonight to the vast majority of customers who can accept service after severe weather Thursday knocked out power to about 40,000 Louisiana customers. Some customers scattered across Greater Baton Rouge and Kentwood in Tangipahoa Parish may not be restored until early tomorrow.
Crews have restored power to more than 85% of the approximately 40,000 Louisiana customers who lost electricity after severe thunderstorms swept across the state Thursday.
Crews restored approximately 24,000 customer outages by 3 p.m. Monday as Cristobal, which made landfall as a tropical storm, was moving out of Louisiana.
As Tropical Storm Cristobal continues moving north into Louisiana, Entergy crews have successfully restored 10,711 customer outages as of 5 p.m. Sunday.
