Entergy Arkansas storm update – 7/15/23, 11:30 a.m.


Severe thunderstorms overnight brought lightning strikes and damaging winds into the state and interrupted service to more than 16,000 customers in several Entergy Arkansas communities. Since that time, more than 7,000 customers have been restored, and most are expected to have power by 10 p.m. tonight.

Restoration teams are responding to damages as quickly and safely as possible. Crews have been on the ground since dawn assessing damages and making major repairs to energize the greatest number of customers.  

Entergy Arkansas strives to provide the most up-to-date information about outages, but damages in some areas are extensive. Estimated restoration times for each service area are listed below.

Thank you for being a valued Entergy Arkansas customer. We appreciate your patience.

We understand the extreme heat during this time. To protect yourself and your families, follow these recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Drink fluids, even if you don't feel thirsty.
  • Wear loose, lightweight clothing and a hat.
  • Replace salt lost from sweating by drinking fruit juice or sports drinks.
  • Avoid spending time outdoors during the hottest part of the day, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Wear sunscreen: a sunburn affects the body's ability to cool itself.
  • Air conditioning is the best way to cool off; if you are using a generator, do so safely.
  • Check on seniors, who can be particularly susceptible to extreme temperatures.
