Entergy Texas Keeping an Eye on Tropical Weather

BEAUMONT September 12, 2018 - As heavy rains and flash flooding soak Southeast Texas this week, Entergy Texas is also closely monitoring a tropical system near the Yucatan Peninsula that is predicted to land somewhere on the Texas coast.

Crews in Texas are on standby and will be ready to respond, if necessary. Entergy also is ensuring that additional supplies, including poles, transformers and other pole-top equipment, are on hand. Additional crews also could be called in, if necessary.

“The heavy rain we’ve already seen, as well as the potential for a tropical system brings challenges for restoration efforts, but we are preparing to respond as quickly as is safely possible,” said Allen East, vice president of distribution operations for Entergy Texas, Inc. “Our preparations also include ensuring the safety of our employees, and we suggest that our customers also stay alert and be prepared.” 

Stay prepared and informed

Entergy keeps customers informed about restoring power in several ways:

  • A free app is available for iPhone or Android at com.
  • Entergy’s outage map shows where outages are located and gives information about restoration progress.
  • Customers can send and receive text messages about storm and restoration efforts. Signing up is easy: simply text REG to 368374.
  • The Entergy Storm Center has storm safety, preparation, restoration and other information that is regularly updated.

Customers are encouraged to follow us on social media on Twitter @EntergyTX and on facebook.com/EntergyTX. 

While Entergy is preparing, it is important that customers prepare as well. Get helpful information about how you can prepare by visiting the Entergy StormCenter and the Storm Resources Page, located on the Public Utility Commission of Texas website.
