As of Friday at 11:00 a.m., 80% of customers impacted from the storm have been restored, 4,424 remain without power. Precipitation from the winter storm that impacted the state has ended with some very light snow flurries; however hazardous and treacherous driving conditions remain in parts of the state and may slow restoration. We are working to ensure we have the people, crews and resources ready to respond to outages quickly and safely, while practicing social distancing measures needed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the additional safety measures our crews must take, restoration may take longer, especially where there are widespread outages. Most customers are expected to be restored by the end of the day Friday. For additional inclement weather tips and storm updates visit www.entergy.com/stormcenter.
