Crews are continuing damage assessments and restoration efforts following strong storms with 70 mph winds, heavy rain.
National Hurricane Preparedness Week is here.
After 1994, Entergy started transitioning to a more centralized approach to storm response that included leveraging resources across the company’s four-state area to accelerate service restoration.
The devastating tornadoes that swept across Arkansas on March 31 left a profound impact on employees and customers, who came together to support each other after the storms.
We anticipate over 95% of customers without power will have it restored tonight. We sincerely appreciate our customers' patience as we work toward a complete and safe restoration.
The restoration process from last week’s tornadoes was temporarily delayed today by the most recent round of thunderstorms that moved across the state today. As the thunderstorms cleared the state, and conditions became safe to work, crews resumed work to restore power.
Last week, I toured parts of the Entergy Mississippi service area that were devastated by the recent tornado outbreak, including Rolling Fork, Silver City and Winona. It was destruction that I have never seen in my time at Entergy or in my personal life as a Mississippian.
More thunderstorms and possible tornadoes moving through the area today could delay some restoration work, but crews are working to restore power as quickly and safely as they can.
Consistent with our commitment to powering life for our customers every day, Entergy Arkansas crews are still working in Ground Zero where the tornadoes struck.
