By  | 

Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough shared an update on Tuesday, July 9 at 10:15am on power restoration, cooling centers and shelters.

Notes from the update:

  • 80% Montgomery County is still without power
  • Sources at Entergy: “Their focus is transmission so they can get their systems up and get the distribution going. They are focusing on the highest concentration of population in order to reach the most amount of people in the shortest amount of time. They believe they will have about 50% of customers up by tomorrow evening, and that by the end of this week Montgomery County should be in pretty good shape overall as it relates to power.”
