Here's some of what we will be doing to restore your power safely and quickly after the storm.

  • The extra workers coming to help us will gather at staging sites to prepare to restore service.
  • You may see trucks, other vehicles and workers lined up while we process them into our system, taking inventory of equipment and personnel and giving a complete safety orientation.
You can make sure your home or business is ready for us to restore your power.

  • Check outside your home or business for damage to your electrical equipment.
  • If the meter or any of the piping and wires on the outside wall of your home or business is missing or looks damaged, call an electrician to make repairs.
  • If your home or business has been flooded, you will need to contact the city or county where you live or work for an electrical inspection before service can be restored.
  • Entergy Storm Center has information to help you know how to spot damages.
