Kerri Case, senior communications specialist for Entergy, said that the company is still assessing storm damage using scouts.
Crews worked overnight to try to provide as many people with power as possible. Although some linemen were sent home because they had worked too many consecutive hours, all linemen that can work are working to restore power.
"We are trying to get it back on as quickly as is safely possible," Case said.
Contractors and crews from Louisiana are providing additional help to the restoration efforts.
Case also stressed the importance of caution around downed power lines. She said that anyone approaching such a line should turn around immediately and call Entergy. Their phone number is 800-ENTERGY.
"It is 100 percent not safe," Case said. "You can't tell by looking whether a downed line is live or not."
Case said most of the storm damage is concentrated in central Arkansas with significant pockets of damage near Russellville and Stuttgart.
