The National Weather Service has designated the week of February 25 - March 2 as Arkansas' Severe Weather Awareness Week. Entergy Arkansas hopes this annual event will increase public awareness about the dangers of severe weather and encourage people to take steps to protect themselves and their property.
In recognition of Severe Weather Preparedness Week, Entergy is encouraging customers to join the company in being storm ready not only ahead of spring, but also year-round.
Ahead of the seasonal switch, Mississippi has declared Feb. 11-17, Severe Weather Preparedness Week. Entergy Mississippi is encouraging customers to observe the week by making a plan, keeping a kit, and staying informed.
Freezing temperatures are expected to impact Mississippi next week, kicking heaters and energy consumption into high gear. Fortunately, Entergy Mississippi customers can stay warm while managing energy usage and costs by making their homes more energy efficient.

The report – submitted to the Mississippi Public Service Commission – acknowledges that, while the team of restoration workers worked very hard under the extraordinary severe weather challenges, we did not meet our customers’ expectations.
Survivors of the tornadoes that devastated the Mississippi Delta in March can receive free legal help from Entergy employees. Trained employee volunteers are available to help homeowners and renters in Carroll, Humphreys, Monroe and Sharkey counties file Federal Emergency Management Agency appeals.
The next few weeks are critical, with past late-August storms such as Hurricanes Andrew, Katrina, Laura and Ida reminding us of the need to be ready. Entergy Mississippi is prepared for potential hurricanes this season, and you should be ready, too.
Crews have spent the last 24 hours assessing damages after strong winds and storms blew through much of Arkansas Sunday evening. Restoration efforts are now underway across the state.
