Jarrod has just been informed, by Entergy, that he has been chosen as one of 8 guys from this area that could have to go to Louisiana if the hurricane continues to track in that direction.
Here is a news release from Entergy: Entergy Utility Companies Monitor Hurricane Gustav New Orleans, La. – Entergy New Orleans, Inc. and Entergy Louisiana, LLC are closely monitoring Hurricane Gustav as the storm moves toward the Gulf of Mexico. Although the path and landfall of the storm remains uncertain, Entergy’s utility companies in southeast Louisiana are preparing for the possibility that the storm could affect parts of the companies’ service territories in the New Orleans metro and southeast Louisiana areas. Should the storm impact southeast Louisiana, it could cause widespread and extended power outages. The Entergy companies’ crews and contractors will be staged near the predicted landfall area and are prepared to work as soon as it is safe to do after the storm passes, restoring service to customers as quickly and as safely as possible.
We are watching this storm very closely! I'll keep you posted.
