High Winds Increase Likelihood of Storm-Related Power Outages

BEAUMONT, March 8, 2016 - While rain alone may not cause significant power outages, the high winds and lightning that often accompany stormy weather are another matter. In that scenario, tree limbs may be blown into power lines or lightning may strike electrical facilities, among other things. Entergy Texas, Inc. has placed personnel and contractors on alert as stormy weather moves through Southeast Texas for the next few days. Meanwhile, media outlets are asked to remind residents of key resources available to help them prepare safely for storms and stay informed about any power outages that may occur.

Safety first. If you come across any downed power lines, assume they are electrified and keep away from them. Call 1-800-ENTERGY to report them.

Links to key resources to remember during stormy weather include the following:
