Important Update on Hurricane Beryl Recovery 

Dear Neighbors,

As we recover from the impact of Hurricane Beryl, I want to thank each of you for your resilience and community spirit. This storm has tested us, but it has also shown our strength and ability to come together. Your cooperation and support for one another have been truly inspiring. As we are recovering from Hurricane Beryl it is important not to remove tree limbs from power lines. Please call CenterPoint Energy to have this done safely.

Please stay connected and we will provide updates as we get them.

CenterPoint Energy Recovery Update

CenterPoint crews were out early this morning, working to restore power to those impacted by#Beryl. If you see them around your property, please secure pets and allow them access to your yard and for your safety and theirs, don’t approach them so they can stay focused on their work.

Based on current progress with its damage assessment and initial restoration, CenterPoint now expects to have 1 million impacted customers restored by the end of the day on Wednesday, July 10.

CenterPoint says they are committed to working around-the-clock to restore service as safely and quickly as possible and has mobilized nearly 12,000 field resources to support its restoration efforts. The company also continues to prioritize its restoration efforts on essential facilities critical to health and public safety. CenterPoint has already deployed mobile generation units, including to an emergency facility and an area hospital, and expects to deploy more in the coming days. As damage assessment and restoration progresses, the company will provide additional service restoration expectations. Customers in the hardest-hit areas could experience extended outages and should plan accordingly.
