If you look carefully today, you can see some improvements since Isaac struck. The map is much more blue than red – clearly, the outages are being reduced. Entergy had said they would have power back to 90% of those “ready for power” by September 6. Hopefully this will work out, but there is still much work to do.
Keeping track of the day-to-day progress of the recovery here in a visual format may serve as a reference for future similar events.
Legend: Blue = 1 to 50, Yellow = 51 to 250 and Red = 251 to 1,000 power outages. Red lines are failed power lines.
