NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - North Little Rock Electric Department (NLRED) crews continue to make good progress restoring power to customers. Power has been restored to over 99% of NLRED's customers as of 4 p.m. Friday. While we are in the final phase of the power restoration process, it may prove time-consuming since the outages are scattered across North Little Rock and Sherwood. All NLRED customers that can receive power should have power restored this weekend.
(Note: NLR Electric is keeping customers updated on progress via its facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/NLRElectric )
Home owners who have had their service loop to their home damaged need to contact an electrician to make repairs before NLRED can restore power. NLRED asked that customers leave their porch lights on so crews can quickly determine if power is restored and make sure backyard gates can be easily accessed to repair damage.
NLRED has restored power to more than 18,000 customers since the Christmas winter storm began, using multiple crews and contractors. Crews will continue to work to restore power as quickly as possible. We appreciate our customers' patience as we continue our efforts.
