ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — Entergy crews spent yesterday wrapping up restoration work after a nearly four-day-long battle to repair damage done by Tropical Storm Lee.
As of yesterday morning, Entergy crews had restored power to all of its customers whose homes and businesses can receive it.
The peak number of customers out at one time across Entergy’s four-state service territory was approximately 38,000, which occurred around 10 a.m. last Saturday.
“Tropical Storm Lee wasn’t as strong as some storms we have seen in recent years,” said Greg Grillo, Entergy’s storm incident commander, “but the continued severe work conditions created by strong winds and driving rain presented their own challenges. I am extremely proud of the safe work done by Entergy crews and contractors to restore power to our customers.”
