In all, nearly 400,000 Entergy customers are out of power in Southeast Texas.
Mid South (estimates according to a company spokesperson):
- Montgomery County - 6,000
- Walker County - 1,500

Mid South has made progress in the aftermath of the storm, but Montgomery County restoration could take more time due to Entergy system problems that are affecting Mid South.
As a sidenote, power companies designate a "customer" as a business or a household. The number of individuals without power is likely much greater. For example, a family of four may be out of power, but since they live in one home, they count as one customer.
