Almost all of New Orleans should have its power back by Wednesday, 10 days after Hurricane Ida destroyed the city’s electric grid and left more than 1 million people without power, the Associated Press reported on Friday.
Entergy, which provides the city with electricity, issued a statement acknowledging the damage from the storm, the report said.
Over 25,000 workers from 40 states are trying to fix 14,000 damaged poles, the report said, including more than 2,200 broken transformers and over 150 destroyed transmission structures.
