Texas Storm Restoration Sunday Evening Update

05/12/2019

Since the severe weather that blew through Entergy Texas service territory on May 10th, Entergy has restored service to more than 97,662 customers. As of 4:00 pm, there are 6,925 customers without power. The remaining significant damage exists in the Port Arthur and Mid County areas. Over the past two days, additional resources have arrived in the area to assist our crews with restoring power safely and quickly.

At this time, Entergy Texas has directed all the available crews on completing restoration work in the Port Arthur and Winnie areas.

Safety is an Entergy key value and always comes first. When restoring power, we have a specific process we follow to safely restore all customers. First, we restore power to critical community infrastructure and essential services such as hospitals, water treatment plants, police and fire stations, and communication systems. Then, we will concentrate our resources on what gets the greatest number of customers restored the fastest.
