A workforce of more than 13,000 will restore outages caused by Hurricane Laura
Customers asked to conserve electricity.
Members of Entergy’s storm team are assessing damages and restoring power where it is safe to do so after Hurricane Laura made landfall Thursday near Cameron as a catastrophic Category 4 hurricane, causing widespread damage to Entergy’s electrical system and knocking out power to customers across Louisiana and east Texas.
As of 8:00 a.m., Entergy Texas has 102,500 customers without power.
Customers in hardest-hit areas should prepare for possibility of extended power outages.
Customers are encouraged to stay storm ready following Tropical Storm Marco
Laura is forecast to make landfall along the Texas/Louisiana border potentially as a major Category 3 hurricane beginning Wednesday night.
Entergy Texas continues to monitor the weather forecasts for both tropical storms Laura and Marco in the Gulf of Mexico.
