Entergy's Report on Damage and Power Outages

Tropical Storm Olga gave a devastating blow to the Northshore area.  Entergy will complete 75% of
damage assessments by end of day Saturday with hopes of having 100% assessments by the end of day Sunday.

The estimated restoration time for the majority of customers is by the end of the day Sunday with isolated cases sometime before 10:00 p.m. Sunday.

On the Northshore alone, the following damage assessments were reported as of mid-afternoon Saturday:

  • 41 broken poles
  • 130 spans of wire down
  • 3 feeders and 2 poles were inaccessible
  • 8 transformers down
  • 12 cross arms broken

Three tree-trimming crews began arriving on the Northshore Saturday evening with two heading on to the Bogalusa area.  There are numerous trees down across road ways, along with flooding making some of the roads inaccessible.  However, only about 50% of the damage had been assessed by mid afternoon.

As of 4:30 p.m. Saturday, the outages were as follows:  Livingston Parish 227; St. Helena Parish 16; Tangipahoa  Parish 11,042; St. Tammany Parish 729; and; Washington Parish 1,023.
