Nearly 48,000 customers lost power due to Hurricane Laura, as trees toppled onto power lines and heavy winds caused damage to power poles and electrical equipment. More than half were restored by Friday afternoon, and the company expects 98% of customers who can take power will be restored by Sunday evening.
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.
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.
