Statement From Judge Mark Keough Regarding Power Outages

Statement from Judge Mark Keough:
 
"Just got off a briefing with Entergy.
 
Entergyโ€™s western territory which encompasses anything west of the Trinity River has suffered a major generation failure.
 
The new Montgomery County plant has been shut off due to icing.
 
Currently the plant is back in start up mode and is generating some power but not fully restored.
 
They hope to have this plan back to 100% by 9:30 this morning.
 
The two generators at Lewis Creek have also suffered shut downs due to instrumentation failure due to icing.
 
Entergy is working on thawing and getting them back online.
 
Once generation is restored this morning we should start to see power restored.
 
Thankfully they donโ€™t have power line distribution issues and the outages are due to power plant failures.
 
Entergy asked us to get out the word that when power is restored please conserve as much energy as possible for the first few hours to allow the grid to stabilize."

@TheWoodlandsTXDotCom : Is there any hope of getting power restored in Paradise Cove subdivision off Calvary Rd in Willis? Ours has been off continuously for 29 hours.

@TheWoodlandsTXDotCom : Why couldn't they be prepared with heaters to prevent the icing? Who will be fired over this? Who is the responsible person, manager, in charge over this? Anyone can do an OK job in fair weather, when no one needs heat and power. Name the persons responsible and they need to be fired asap! Enough of rewarding incompetence while canceling everyone else for merely speaking. This is BS!

Failing to plan is not an excuse! I agree fire every one, whom is eligible for a bonus........

@TheWoodlandsTXDotCom : I appreciate the updated information and encouragement that power might be restored soon. Our power has been out in the Star Fern neighborhood (Grogans Mill) since 4:00 AM on the 15th. Inside our home the temperature is 39 degrees. Entergy does not care; I called them and for whatever reason we don't get to participate with the rolling brownout. I wonder if any of our elected officials can get Entergy to function.

Folks, Try to remember this situation when you vote for railroad Commission, State Senator, State Rep, and all County offices!
