Severe weather can strike at any time, so Entergy stays prepared year-round, and urges customers to do the same.
Crews expect to restore power by tonight to the majority of customers still without electricity in areas struck hardest by the violent storm system that swept across Louisiana Saturday.
We are prepared and encourage you to finalize your preparations as well.
Crews expect to restore power by tonight to the vast majority of customers still without electricity due to Olga, with a few pockets of customers in the hardest hit areas to see power restored sometime Tuesday.
Crews have restored power to more than 79,000 of the customers affected by the remnants of Tropical Storm Olga that hit Louisiana Saturday.
Olga moved quickly through Louisiana, bringing thunderstorms and high winds that knocked out power to more than 92,000 customers at its peak Saturday morning. As of 10:30 a.m. Saturday, approximately 77,000 customer outages remained.
Entergy’s Louisiana utilities are sending a team of more than 200 employees and contractors to the East Coast to help restore power following anticipated widespread damage by Hurricane Dorian.
As the storm moves slowly through our service territory, outage numbers will continue to fluctuate. While our number of customers affected remains fairly consistent, we have already restored over 188,000 customers.
