After the storm: Entergy Texas is the electrical provider for most of the listeners to KSHN, and they have plans to restore power to folks who may have lost power during Hurricane Laura as quickly as possible. In addition to their local workforce, they have requested mutual aid from power companies across the country. As a result of that request, electrical workers from 20 states are converging to one of several staging areas throughout Southeast Texas and Louisiana. In total 10,000 workers are coming to assist the Entergy workers in the effort to restore power to customers as quickly as possible.  In an information release by Allison Payne of Entergy, it was revealed that the crews have added flood protections for equipment in other areas that could see high water. High-water vehicles, drones, helicopters and airboats have also been secured to assist in restoration efforts. Entergy customers should be aware crews are following COVID-19 precautionary measures, which may slow restoration work. 45 Crew trucks that were staged at the Friendship Inn on Highway 90 have been moved east to assist in the Beaumont area and Louisiana. Crews will not move into storm affected the area to begin restoration until it is safe to do so. As crews learn more about the damage, a plan will be put in place that restores power to the greatest number of customers safely in the shortest amount of time. To report an outage, or other electrical concern, call 1-800-ENTERGY, THAT’S 1-800-368-3749
