Hurricane Zeta Restoration Update – 11/11/20 @ 9 a.m.
Entergy Louisiana’s storm team continues to restore power after Hurricane Zeta brought high winds and heavy rain across Louisiana.
As of 8 a.m. Wednesday morning, approximately 370 customers were without power, down from a peak of over 480,000. The majority of outages occurred in Jefferson, Orleans, Lafourche, Terrebonne, Plaquemines and St. Bernard Parishes.
The company has amassed a storm team of approximately 6,600 to respond to outages and is prepared to bring in additional resources as needed.
Damage assessments are 100% complete. As of Wednesday morning, we have identified damages to approximately 2,800 poles, 1,800 spans of wire, and 575 transformers.
Customers are reminded to stay clear of all downed lines and equipment. There is no way to know if a line is energized or not, so if you see one, keep your distance and call 1-800-9OUTAGE (800-968-8243).
Customers choosing to use portable electric generators should do so in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Customers should never connect a generator directly to a building’s wiring without a licensed electrician disconnecting the house from Entergy’s distribution lines. Otherwise, it can create a safety hazard for the customer or our linemen working to restore power. And it may damage the generator or the house wiring.
To speak with an Entergy representative about the status of restoration in your area, please visit our Customer Information Center, located at Grand Isle Multiplex 3101 LA-1, Grand Isle, LA 70358 from 10 AM to 3 PM daily.
