14,000 Entergy Arkansas Customers Still Without Power

Feb 17, 2015

Entergy Arkansas says just more than 14,000 customers remain without power after a winter storm moved across the state.

Entergy said Tuesday that most will have power restored by 10 p.m. Tuesday, but some repairs may take until Wednesday.

The most outages, about 4,700, are in Montgomery County. More than 2,635 were without electricity in Clark County and about 2,550 were without power in Drew County following the Sunday night and Monday storms. The remaining outages were scattered statewide.

Entergy said more than 30,000 customers lost power during the storms, primarily due to ice-covered trees and limbs falling onto power lines.

The company said about 1,000 extra workers from sister companies and contractors were brought to the state, but icy roads made travel difficult and slowed repair work.
