Entergy Arkansas is staging crews, equipment and supplies in areas of the state likely to be the hardest hit in the coming days based on a forecast for sleet, freezing rain, and ice accumulations.
Large amounts of snow along with strong wind gusts greatly impacted the north and northwest areas of the state, causing an estimated 36,000 Entergy Arkansas customer outages at its peak Wednesday morning. The weight of the winter precipitation felled trees, broke limbs, power lines and other equipment, and damage assessments are ongoing.
125 additional beds are being placed in service tonight at the City of New Orleans’ Low-Barrier Shelter to take homeless people off the streets during the deep freeze, as a result of a grant from Entergy New Orleans.
Entergy Arkansas is prepared for the likelihood that winter weather will affect parts of the company’s service territory Thursday, Dec. 22, through Saturday, Dec. 24, with temperatures below freezing, strong winds and precipitation.
