As of Friday at 5:00 p.m., 85% of customers impacted from the storm have been restored, 2,872 remain without power. Precipitation from the winter storm that impacted the state has ended; however hazardous and treacherous driving conditions remain in parts of the state and may slow restoration. We have the people, crews and resources working to restore 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 estimated to be restored by noon Saturday February 5. For additional inclement weather tips and storm updates visit www.entergy.com/stormcenter.
