Beaumont, Texas—With Isaac's loss of hurricane status, plus lower winds and less rain, Entergy Texas this morning gave the green light for 260 workers to move east to assist in restoring power to customers in Louisiana. Personnel tapped for restoration work will head first to staging sites in the Baton Rouge area where they will receive their assignments.
The number of employees and contractors assisting with restoration has increased to 260 today, up by 16 over Wednesday's planned contingent of 244.
Those going now include:
• 102 company and contract tool workers
• 24 scouts
• 33 support personnel
• 101 contract tree trimmers.
