With electricity back online, so are Suddenlink services. As of 11 a.m. today, more than 95% of Suddenlink-served homes in Newport, Ark., were back to normal. Jonesboro, Ark., was close to the same threshhold.
Though not as far along, restoration efforts by power-company crews continue in other impacted areas served by Suddenlink, including Pocahontas, Walnut Ridge, and Mt. Home. In the latter two communities, according to a story in The Batesville Daily Guard, Entergy Arkansas has opened “customer information centers” — at City Hall, 720 S. Hickory Street, in Mt. Home; and at 109 Southwest Front Street in Walnut Ridge.
Per the Daily Guard story:
These centers provide an opportunity for customers to speak face-to-face with [power] company representatives for local information about outages, progress in restoring power and other issues. Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, including Sunday.
