Power restored to more than 4,000 Entergy AR customers

POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) - Entergy Arkansas is reporting power to more than 4,000 customers has been restored after a significant power outage in Northeast Arkansas.

The outage was due to a transmission line fault, according to Entergy Customer Service Manager David Burnette. 

Transmission lines are the cross country lines originating from generating stations that deliver power at high voltages to area substations that feed towns.

The transmission outage affected approximately 4,760 customers in the towns of Corning, Peach Orchard, Knobel, Datto, Reyno, Biggers, Success, and Pocahontas.

Aerial patrols located and assessed the transmission problem.

Burnette says the damage to transmission pole was caused by a tractor hitting a guy wire and breaking the transmission pole.
