Several Region 8 workers are making their way to Gonzalez, Louisiana to help restore power to flooding victims.

According to Entergy Arkansas’s David Burnette, Entergy requested 20 service workers from Arkansas to assist relief efforts in Gonzalez, a town southeast of Baton Rouge.

More than 12,000 locals there are still without power and many electric meters have been damaged in the flood.

Arkansas Entergy representatives were dispatched Wednesday to address infrastructure problems and local servicemen in any way they can.
