BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — As Hurricane Ian is set to make landfall in Florida this week, Entergy is sending crews to help repair widespread damage.

Entergy said 820 restoration workers will be going to help Florida.

“Lending a helping hand during a natural disaster is what we do. We mobilize crews to support our friends and neighbors throughout the country, just as so many other utilities have done for us over the years, most recently with hurricanes Laura and Ida,” said James Wood, senior manager of incident response.

The utility company urges its customers to stay weather aware and have a disaster plan in place in the event of a storm.

On Wednesday, Governor John Bel Edwards tweeted out that the Louisiana National Guard is headed to Florida to assist in Hurricane Ian’s aftermath. The Sunshine State is bracing for storm surges, strong winds and flooding.
