Within one year after Hurricane Ida, Entergy rebuilds a Mississippi River crossing using an unprecedented 175-mph wind loading criteria.
The extreme winter weather disrupted electrical service for approximately 54,000 Entergy customers at its height yesterday. As of 11:15 a.m., we have restored power to nearly 94% of our customers.
We have started restoring service to our customers where it is safe to do so and assessing damage to our system. A winter storm system bringing record and near-record low temperatures across most of the Entergy service area continues as we head into this holiday weekend.
After working into the night and this morning, Entergy New Orleans and Entergy Louisiana crews and contractors have restored power to approximately 85% of customers in the hard-hit parishes of Jefferson, Orleans and St. Bernard.
As of 9:30 p.m. crews have successfully restored more than 29,000 customers – down from a peak of approximately 47,000 customers in Southeast Louisiana impacted by today’s severe weather.
Entergy New Orleans and Entergy Louisiana crews are assessing damage from severe weather that swept across the state and have begun the process of restoring power where it is safe to do so.
As we mark the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Ida, the historic event serves as a stark reminder that while Entergy is prepared to safely respond to whatever Mother Nature brings our way, it only takes one storm to make it a challenging season.
When it comes to storm recovery costs, in the absence of receiving federal aid or insurance, we work closely with our regulators to ensure we're using the best methods to continue providing essential services and keep bills more affordable.
