Entergy Texas winter storm update – 12/23/22, 9 p.m.
Crews continue to work around the clock to safely restore power; fewer than 8,000 outages remain
Entergy Texas crews continue to restore power to communities across Southeast Texas after winter weather with strong winds and gusts impacted the region.
Approximately 46,000 (84%) of the 54,500 total impacted customers have been restored since the beginning of the weather event at 2 p.m. on Thursday, December 22. As of 9 p.m., fewer than 8,000 customers were without power – down from a peak of approximately 19,000 at 6 a.m.
Entergy Texas operates under the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, and we are proud to report there continues to be enough generation supply to meet power demand.
Power is expected to be restored to most of the remaining customers later tonight, with some customers in the heavily impacted locations potentially being restored Saturday. Estimated times of restoration may be adjusted as more information becomes available.
As a reminder, when temperatures are extremely cold, we must bring customers back online one section at a time, rather than simply energizing an entire power line all at once. For the most up-to-date information on restoration, view our Outage Map, download the Entergy app, and sign up for texts alerts by texting REG to 36778.
For the safety of our crews and your individual safety, please stay away from Entergy Texas work zones. If you need to report a problem with your service or get bill payment help, we’re just a phone call away: 1-800-ENTERGY (1-800-368-3749).
