The city of Little Rock says Entergy informed them there are about 38,000 meters that still did not have power to them in the city. This is a big improvement from Friday's 58,000 meters.
Energy reports that 100 percent of electrical circuits should be operational today and their staff will begin to focus on lateral transmission lines, according to a news release from the city of Little Rock.
As the lateral transmission lines are repaired, Entergy crews can begin working on individual connections to homes.
Entergy reports that all the damage assessment is complete and crews are also now able to identify isolated problem areas.
Entergy reports that there are a little over 1,000 linemen working in the Little Rock area, being supported by little over 500 utility trucks. In addition to these resources, there are approximately 500 tree and vegetation removal crews working in the area.
The City of Little Rock says as of noon Friday, roughly 58,834 meters were without power in the city. It's believed a number of meters have been restored since that estimate was taken.
Entergy reports that several additional circuits were lost Thursday evening, causing the number of meters without power to increase, according to a news release.
Entergy staff reports that there are 258 people on the ground scouting areas to determine what needs to be done to restore power. Currently the assessment is 100% complete on the circuits and 50% complete on laterals; Entergy's goal is to increase that number to 75% by Friday evening.
