Entergy Arkansas storm restoration update – 8/9/22, 3:30 p.m.
Crews worked late into the night to restore power to more than 22,000 customers after thunderstorms rolled through the state Monday, causing widespread damage and a peak of 23,000 outages. The hardest hit areas included Little Rock, Hot Springs, Magnolia and Pine Bluff with a cumulative total of 3,000 outages remaining around noon Tuesday. Customers still without power are expected to be restored by 10 p.m.
The damages included dozens of broken and downed power poles, trees and limbs on power lines and some substation equipment. A lot of damage in residential areas has required specialty equipment to access electrical components – including many of the broken power poles – in back yards.
The damage severe weather can cause is unpredictable, and we thank you for your patience during this time. For the most timely and current information, view the Outage Map online, within the myEntergy app, and/or sign up for texts alerts.
