Restoration efforts are ready for customers who may be impacted

Entergy Texas is monitoring the development of Tropical Storm Beryl, which is expected to land along the Texas Gulf Coast on Monday, July 8, as a Category 1 hurricane. While the path and intensity of Tropical Storm Beryl could change, potential impacts for Southeast Texas include strong winds, storm surge, flooding and tornado threats.

Staying storm-ready is a full-time commitment, and Entergy Texas crews are prepared to safely turn the lights back on as quickly as possible if needed. The company has also proactively identified travel teams to support neighboring utilities throughout the state.

As the storm moves closer to Texas, Entergy Texas encourages customers to have a family storm plan and review safety tips on the Entergy Storm Center.

Keeping customers informed before, during, and after a storm is important to Entergy Texas. Here are some of the platforms we use to provide updates:
