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.
For crews restoring power in Arkansas following the tornadoes, more work is still to be done.
Crews are working in Ground Zero where the tornadoes struck. Hundreds of properties are damaged to the point where they cannot receive electrical service.
About 7,800 customers remain without power after tornados devastated the Little Rock, Jacksonville, Sherwood and Wynne areas on Friday, March 31, knocking out power to more than 56,000 customers.
