Some parts of our service area may see snow, ice, or freezing rain beginning this afternoon. This will be followed by an extended period of very low temperatures in all four states we serve.
Even as Entergy employees continue to respond to outages caused by widespread severe thunderstorms, our workers are prepared to respond to another major winter event across our service.
Entergy’s Louisiana utilities and its contractors are prepared and ready to respond if the anticipated severe weather that is expected to impact our service territory causes power outages.
Hurricanes, tornadoes and winter ice storms are often described as “having a mind of their own,” but advanced planning and training makes the overall response as immediate and efficient as possible.
With the holiday season upon us, I wanted to thank you for your continued support throughout this past year. It has been appreciated because 2023 saw our company put forth major initiatives to better serve our customers and our communities.
