Restoration is complete after storms, including two confirmed tornadoes, moved through Entergy Mississippi’s service territory this week. Fallen trees and limbs damaged our facilities and caused outages. Since Monday night, crews restored power to 66,074 customers. Electrical power has been restored to all customers who can safely receive power.

A workforce of 760 damage assessors, vegetation crews, line workers, and support personnel worked diligently to restore power as quickly and safely as possible. Damage identified included 126 poles, 46 transformers and 67 crossarms and more than 28 miles of downed wire.

If power has been restored to your area and you are without power, check for damage to the electrical equipment attached to your home or business. If your power is out and your electric equipment appears undamaged, call 1-800-9OUTAGE, 1-800-968-8243.

Entergy restoration workers cannot restore power to a location with a damaged meter base, conduit or weather head (the metal pipe extending upward from the structure with electrical cables inside). These items must be repaired by a qualified electrician before our workers can restore. Learn more about the electrical equipment that serves your home.
