The company is on track to restore 50% of impacted customers by end of day

Entergy Texas crews continue to restore customers from outages caused by Hurricane Beryl. Approximately 100,500 customers have been restored since the storm first made impact.

A workforce of more than 1,600 will continue working around the clock to restore 50% of customers impacted by the end of day Wednesday. The company expects to restore 75% of customers by the end of the day Friday.

While our work continues, we encourage customers to not approach crews at a job site, as our work sites can be dangerous locations and interruptions will slow our workers’ progress. Remember to also stay away from downed power lines and areas of debris. Your safety and the safety of our employees and contractors is a core value.

Estimated restoration dates by location are provided below.

*While many customers will be restored sooner, these dates describe when we expect to restore the majority of customers who can safely accept service.

Entergy Texas encourages customers to keep these safety tips top of mind:

  • Stay away from downed power lines and areas of debris. Energized power lines may not be visible among the rubble. 
  • Report downed lines immediately to Entergy at 1-800-9OUTAGE (1-800-968-8243), and call your local police station or fire department.
  • Return home only when authorities advise and drive only on roadways and bridges that have been declared passable.
  • If a power line falls on your vehicle while driving, continue to drive away from the line.
  • Don’t walk in flooded areas or standing water. Remember that wet tree limbs can conduct electricity.
  • Keep your distance from working crews. Work sites can have any number of hidden dangers for the public, and distracting crews can cause accidents to happen.
