LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Exactly one week after the Christmas Day snow and ice storm, almost all of the more than 230,000 customers who lost power had received it back.
As of 9:45 a.m. Tuesday, Entergy Arkansas reported 2,350 electrical outages in the state. That's down from a peak of about 194,000 customers without power last week. Entergy crews have worked around the clock since Wednesday to restore power; additional workers from 15 states were brought in to help get the job done.
First Electric Cooperative reported late Monday night that all of its customers who lost power had received it back. It had about 30,000 in the dark following last week's storm.
North Little Rock Electric Department finished restoring power to its customers on Sunday.
Entergy has said from the beginning of the mass power outage that it would take about 7 days, until Jan. 1, to fully restore power to its customers. The company is expected to meet that deadline.
