Fewer than 4,500 homes and businesses remain without power several days after a snowstorm blasted Arkansas on Christmas Day.
Crews were working to restore power to the remaining people who were still in the dark Monday, but some may not see electricity return until Tuesday.
Counting customers at Entergy Arkansas and locally owned utilities, more than 260,000 homes and businesses were without power for at least part of the last week. That number had dropped to about 4,463 — mostly in Pulaski County — by early Monday evening.
Entergy said on Twitter that power restoration should conclude Monday around Hot Springs, Malvern, west Saline County, south Pulaski County. West Little Rock and west Pulaski County should continue Tuesday, the utility added.
The utility said it will again have a customer information center open Tuesday at its headquarters at 900 Louisiana Street.
First Electric Cooperative said Monday morning that it had restored power to all but about 20 customers, in Saline County, adding that crews would continue working until power was restored.
The North Little Rock Electric Department said Sunday that it had restored all power after the storm knocked out the lights for 19,000 customers.
Meanwhile, Comcast declined to give specific figures about the extent of its service blackout in the wake of the storm but said it had crews working around the clock to restore service. For the majority of customers, the company said, service should be restored as commercial power failures are resolved.
"In a small number of cases, customers might not have cable service even after power is restored due to more extensive damage caused by fallen trees, poles or downed lines; we will work directly with customers to issue credits on a case-by-case basis," regional spokesman Mary Beth Halprin said.
