JACKSON — A revised forecast calling for additional icing in central and northern Arkansas has Entergy Arkansas calling for help. And Entergy Mississippi crews are answering that call.
Some 63 restoration workers — 38 from Entergy Mississippi and 25 contract crews — plus support teams left central Mississippi and northern Mississippi around noon yesterday to help its sister utility with anticipated outages from the storm. A second travel team is on standby this morning.
“We’re committed to being there to help our sister utility restore power to their customers, just as they have helped us in the past,” said Robbin Jeter, Entergy Mississippi vice president of customer service. “We have a well-practiced, well-used system of mutual support that helps ensure that power restoration after a major storm goes as quickly and safely as possible.”
