Here are several essential components of post-weather damage recovery that make Entergy sites some of the most resilient in the country.
Storm response is a meticulously orchestrated production that Entergy trains and drills for year-round. Well before a storm strikes, employees transition to storm roles and prepare to support service restoration.
Even though several lines had to be de-energized during the flood event, most customers never lost power because of the looped design of Entergy’s electrical system.
Despite the extensive damage, crews were able to restore power to all customers who could receive it within a week of the storm. Engineers also used the rebuild as a chance to strengthen the grid and prepare Rolling Fork for greater resiliency during future storms.
Although Couch died in 1941, the foundation he had established in Mississippi helped position the company to meet the post-World War II surge in electricity demand and the accelerated pace of business and industry expansion.
