More than 90% of customers have been restored following severe thunderstorms

Crews have safely restored power to approximately 90% of customers after heavy rain, high winds, lightning, and thunderstorms caused outages to the Entergy Texas service area. As of 4:30 p.m., approximately 5,700 are without power, down from the peak of 85,000 customers Tuesday afternoon.

A crew of more than 1,400 people are in the field assessing damage, making repairs and safely restoring power as quickly as possible. We anticipate most customers to be restored by 10 p.m. Thursday. However, it may take longer to restore power to those in hard-hit areas. Crews will continue working around the clock until all customers are restored.

With more severe weather forecasted across Southeast Texas this afternoon, Entergy Texas encourages customers to keep these safety tips top of mind:

  • Stay away from downed power lines and areas of debris. Energized power lines may not be visible among the rubble. Report downed lines immediately to Entergy at 1-800-9OUTAGE (1-800-968-8243), and call your local police station or fire department.
  • Return home only when authorities advise and drive only on roadways and bridges that have been declared passable.
  • If a power line falls on your vehicle while driving, continue to drive away from the line.
  • Don’t walk in flooded areas or standing water. Remember that wet tree limbs can conduct electricity.
  • Keep your distance from working crews. Work sites can have any number of hidden dangers for the public, and distracting crews can cause accidents to happen.
