Power restored to most Entergy Ark. customers

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Power has been restored to most Entergy Arkansas customers who lost electricity in this week's storms and high winds.

The utility's website showed fewer than 200 Arkansas customers without power Sunday morning after a peak of nearly 43,000 homes and businesses were in the dark Thursday.

Entergy Arkansas says high winds blew over trees and knocked down limbs, leaving 150 utility poles broken.

The most intense damage was in central and southwest Arkansas, including areas in Little Rock, Hot Springs, El Dorado, Arkadelphia, Russellville, Magnolia, Malvern, Conway and Pine Bluff.
