|Entergy moves 600 workers to Ouachita|
Some 600 Entergy linemen from Arkansas were en route to West Monroe at midday Monday to help with local power outages caused by Hurricane Gustav. They eventually will move on to southern Louisiana once work here is complete.
Overall, Entergy has more than 90,000 restoration workers ready to deploy to southern Louisiana after Gustav leaves the area, said Kenny Solley, Entergy spokesman for northeast Louisiana.
Entergy anticipates some customers will lose power Tuesday in northeast Louisiana when the remnants of Gustav enter the region.
"We're expecting some problems in the southern part of our territory - Grayson, Jonesboro, and the Marksville area," Solley said. "But we've got personnel ready and we're in storm mode. We've been gearing up for this for the past four days."
Entergy placed 50 pods near Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe to house the 600 linemen from Arkansas. The linemen were expected to arrive in West Monroe late Monday.
"They're staying here temporarily in preparation for the storm to clear our service area," Solley said.
"If we do have problems here, we'll take advantage of those linemen before we let them go down south," Solley continued. "We're all waiting to see what will happen.
"We know we're going to get a lot of rain and high winds. And, with a lot of rain, we know the trees' root system will be loosened, and it will be very easy to blow those trees over … and they always seem to find our power lines.
"But we have adequate people, and we're ready for this thing."
