Customers asked to conserve electricity.
Members of Entergy’s storm team are assessing damages and restoring power where it is safe to do so after Hurricane Laura made landfall Thursday near Cameron as a catastrophic Category 4 hurricane, causing widespread damage to Entergy’s electrical system and knocking out power to customers across Louisiana and east Texas.
Customers in hardest-hit areas should prepare for possibility of extended power outages.
Forecasts indicate Laura will impact Southern Arkansas Thursday at noon and further into the state later in the day, causing power outages from tropical storm-force winds, tornadoes, additional thunderstorms, heavy rain and flash flooding, which could lead to days-long outages.
