Crews spread across the state have restored power to more than 85 percent of the peak of 71,000 Entergy Arkansas customers hit by severe weather over the weekend.

 Workers estimate restoration times for the remaining 8,000 customers will be sometime Tuesday with a few especially difficult areas carrying over until Wednesday.

  “We brought in about 1,000 workers from out of state to assist getting the power back on as quickly and safely as possible,” said Audie Foret, senior manager of operations and safety. “As work progresses in some areas, we are moving resources to other parts of the state.”

Scouts reported more than 200 broken poles, 210 spans of wire down and 35 transformers damaged or destroyed by the storm. High winds and flooding made initial progress difficult. Crews continue to monitor rising water for potential danger.
