Things to remember as Tropical Storm Cindy Makes Landfall

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

As Tropical Storm Cindy makes landfall, power outages are possible. Keep your emergency kit handy with things like valuable papers, flashlights, fresh batteries, water and non-perishable food. In the event of major outages, here’s how Entergy restores service:

• Essential services such as hospitals, nursing homes, fire and police departments, and water systems are at the head of the restoration list, along with our equipment that supplies electricity to large numbers of customers.

• Then we will concentrate our resources on getting the greatest number customers back the fastest.

We can’t use our bucket trucks until sustained winds are less than 30 mph, but we can still begin restoring service to customers by closing circuit breakers, rerouting power and other actions.

Stay safe during the storm! There is no way to know if a downed line is energized or not, so if you see one, keep your distance and call 1-800-9OUTAGE (800-968-8243).Also, stay away from standing water and debris from trees and other vegetation. It may be electrically charged from underground or downed power lines.
