Entergy Readies for Potential Tropical Storm
THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Entergy Texas, Inc. is keeping a close eye on a tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico that is expected to make landfall within the next 48 hours.
Current forecasts indicate the storm and its projected 40-mile-per-hour wind gusts will make landfall along the Texas Gulf Coast near Sabine Pass early Thursday morning.
Entergy has core teams stationed in the forecasted area to respond to power outages resulting from severe weather. Crews and contractors are prepared to work long hours to restore service to customers as safely and as quickly as possible.
“This area is no stranger to tropical weather, and we will be doing everything in our power to get it back on safely and quickly,” said Vernon Pierce, vice president of customer service for Entergy Texas. “The company has a well-rehearsed plan of action, and our employees are being mobilized to assist in storm restoration. We ask that our customers get prepared as well.”
With little time before the storm makes landfall, Entergy urges customers to prepare for the possibility of extended power outages. Customers should prepare emergency kits, including flashlights, a battery-powered radio with fresh batteries, spare batteries, canned food and a can opener, a supply of fresh water for several days and a first-aid kit. Entergy has a Storm Ready Guide that customers can download for other great tips.
