Winter Storm Causes Power Outages Across the State

Entergy Arkansas officials say that as of Sunday evening there are approximately 1,600 customers without power.

According to Entergy, at one point, 7,000 customers were without power as winter weather moved across the state.

Entergy Arkansas says with extreme temperatures, sleet and snow this week, it is likely there will be an unprecedented demand for electricity, which could result in more power disruptions.

Entergy Arkansas says if customers lose electricity, they can help with restorations times by turning off major appliances and heating units, and gradually turn them back on when the power is restored.
