Restoration Times for Louisiana,
including Hardest Hit Areas
Last updated 9/21/21 @ 10 a.m.
Lafourche Parish - Estimated Date of Restoration: September 29
Number of outages as of 10 a.m.: 7,774 – 17% of customers remain without power.
Area Notes: While the estimated date of restoration is September 29 for the vast majority or 90% of customers, we have already begun powering critical facilities and other social infrastructure within the parish in advance of this date. We expect to continue this focus while we expand to residential areas and restore power to the parish. The area suffered massive damage, and the electric network in southern portions of the parish will have to be completely rebuilt. These areas, including Golden Meadow and areas south of Golden Meadow, may experience outages that extend beyond September 29. We are currently evaluating alternate solutions to be able to safely provide power as quickly as possible. The majority of customers in Lockport, Raceland, Matthews and Cutoff that can take power have been restored including Bollinger Shipyard. In the Valentine community, crews have made significant progress with power restoration to customers and have distribution resources focused on restoring power to the Lockport area including Lafourche Parish Career Magnet and L.E. Fletcher Community College South campus. Crews continue to restore power in Golden Meadow. A significant amount of damage remains in this area; however, additional crews have been moved into the area to assist with restoration efforts. Crews will continue to restore power where it is safe to do so. Power has been restored up to South Lafourche High School and Lady of the Sea Hospital and were able to utilize a mobile substation to provide power to the LOOP tank farm and provide power to a number of customers. Restoration crews continue to restore power in Galliano area. There remains a significant amount of damage. Additional crews have been moved into the area to assist and crews will continue to restore power where it is safe to do so.
Lower Jefferson Parish - Estimated Date of Restoration: September 29
Number of outages as of 10 a.m.: 2,933 (includes all of Jefferson Parish and the vast majority are lower Jefferson Parish).
Area Notes: The area suffered massive damage. Accessibility issues continue to present challenges. Grand Isle will be a rebuild rather than repaired.
Terrebonne Parish - Estimated Date of Restoration: September 29
Number of outages as of 10 a.m.: 1,462 – 5% of customers remain without power.
Area Notes: While the estimated date of restoration is September 29 for the vast majority or 90% of customers, we have already begun powering critical facilities and other social infrastructure within the parish in advance of this date. Continued need for traffic control and specialized equipment to assist in areas with accessibility issues. As we move south, we move more into a rebuild status. There are many customers whose homes or businesses have been destroyed and will need to reach to Entergy to final the account until their home or business site can be cleaned up and rebuilt. The majority of customers in the Southland, Terrebonne, Cascade, Humphrey and Coteau Substation areas have been restored for those that can safely take power. The majority of customers in the Schriever Substation area have been restored (98%) for those customers who can accept power. We continue to work north of Hwy 90 off of Little Bayou Black to repair damaged equipment serving Fletcher Technical Community College to K&B Industries. In the Houma Substation area, we have energized the main distribution lines and are continuing to make repairs to laterals and taps. This area is primarily located Southeast of the City of Houma South of Hwy 56. Major roads in the area include Hwy 57, Prospect Blvd, Cummins Road, Grand Caillou and Industrial Blvd. Extensive work continues in the Chauvin and Montegut substation areas including Hwys 55, 56, and 58. Significant progress has been made on the main lines.
Please note that these restoration dates represent the vast majority of customers who can safely accept power and a few customers in the most affected areas could still be without power for longer. These estimates are subject to change as we continue with restoration work, and we will issue updates as we learn more.
Please note, dates are by end of day for restoration.
