Crews aim to restore power to most customers before the end of day Friday

Crews are working around the clock to safely restore power after multiple rounds of severe weather caused widespread outages across the Entergy Texas service area this week. As of 5 p.m. Friday., approximately 8,400 remain without power, down from the most recent peak of approximately 22,390 outages Thursday night.

A restoration crew of more than 1,400 people are helping to assess damage, make repairs, and turn the lights back on as quickly as possible. The majority of customers who can safely receive power are expected to be restored before the end of day Friday. However, customers in Huntsville and New Caney are expected be restored Saturday afternoon due to the extent of damage in the area.

Customers are still encouraged to visit Entergy’s View Outage for the latest information.

Here are a few safety tips to keep you and your loved ones safe during storm season:

  • 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.
