Crews Continue North Shore Restoration Work

Share
Sunday, December 10, 2017

Entergy crews are continuing to restore power to North Shore area customers today, with some work expected to last into the night in the hardest-hit areas.

Crews are focused on restoring power to the approximately 13,000 North Shore customers still without power as of 10 a.m. Sunday. Tangipahoa Parish accounted for 11,000 of the remaining outages. Entergy crews have restored power to approximately 59,000 of the 72,300 customers affected by Friday’s winter storm. 

A team of 460 is working to repair damage caused by the winter storm that blanketed the North Shore with heavy, wet snow. Snow-laden tree limbs dropped onto power lines, causing the majority of the outages across the North Shore.

Entergy Louisiana has trimmed trees along nearly 500 miles of line on the North Shore so far this year, but the heavy snow caused tree limbs from outside the company’s rights of way to break and fall onto power lines, causing a large number of outages.
