Safety is our number one priority. If you lose power, keep the following tips in mind: 

  • Stay away from downed power lines and assume they are energized.  
  • Report a power outage on the myEntergy site or call 1-800-9OUTAGE. There is no need to speak with a customer service representative to report an outage if completed online. 
  • If you have a portable generator, use it safely. DO NOT run it in an enclosed space. If connecting the generator to the whole house, do so only if the connection has been installed by a licensed electrician to prevent back feed on to the distribution system.  
  • Do not open your refrigerator or freezer door. Food will stay cold much longer this way. If outside temperature is below freezing, consider placing food in an ice chest outside.  
  • Please stay clear of linemen as they work to safely restore power.
