Entergy Ready to Respond Through Another Potentially Active Hurricane Season

Company Encourages Residents and Businesses to be Storm Ready
NEW ORLEANS – Entergy’s restoration workforce supported its communities through one of the most active hurricane seasons in history in 2020. We are ready to respond again if needed during what forecasters predict will be another active season.
The company is #StormReady and encourages residents and businesses to be as well. Hurricane season starts June 1 with predictions of above-normal activity. With many pandemic-related guidelines still in place, the time to prepare is now.
Along with standard storm preparations, Entergy employees continue navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic by taking additional preparation steps. These include adjusting office settings and crew staging locations and increasing the use of drones to help team members maintain social distancing. It is important to remember that due to the additional safety measures we must take because of the COVID-19 pandemic or an inability to secure enough offsite resources, restoration times may be extended, especially if there are widespread outages. But despite these potential challenges, Entergy remains committed to restoring power quickly and, above all, as safely as possible.
Stay Prepared!
Monitoring severe weather threats is a full-time job, 24/7, 365 days a year. When there is a severe weather threat, we use forecasts and computer models based on experience with previous storms to predict an estimated number and duration of outages that could possibly occur. Based on those estimates, the company calls on restoration workers from around the country to safely get the power back on as quickly as possible for
