Entergy has restored power to 85,000 customers following one full day of assessing damage brought by Hurricane Ida and restoring power to those who can take it.
At 7 a.m., we had 888,229 power outages in Louisiana due to Ida’s destruction. Power outages continue to increase today as the storm moves through Mississippi.
The extremely dangerous storm is expected to make landfall in the early afternoon today. Those in the hardest-hit areas could experience power outages for weeks.
Hurricane Ida continues to be forecasted to make landfall Sunday in central Louisiana as a major hurricane. The strength of the storm at landfall and the damage it causes will affect the time required to restore power to all customers.

We are prepared for the potential impacts of Tropical Storm Ida, predicted to make landfall Aug. 29, potentially as a major hurricane along the mid-Louisiana coast.
Entergy New Orleans has joined the United Way of Southeast Louisiana, the GNO Foundation, and other funders in contributing $150,000 to support Mayor LaToya Cantrell and NOLA Public School’s initiative to provide high school students, who have parental or guardian consent, the opportunity to receive COVID-19 vaccinations on campus through mobile vaccine clinics. The funding will help support the clinics for five months.
The anticipation of summer fun may be the homerun of the school year, but for many students scoring an internship is the grand slam. This year, Entergy New Orleans has opened its doors for two interns to explore the ins-and-outs of working for a premier utility.
