About 112k Entergy Ark. customers still powerless

Entergy Arkansas reports about 112,000 customers remain without electricity as the state braces for freezing rain following a Christmas Day storm that buried much of the state in snow.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Entergy Arkansas reports about 112,000 customers remain without electricity as the state braces for freezing rain following a Christmas Day storm that buried much of the state in snow.

The power company says the greatest number of outages remain in the Little Rock area where nearly 65,000 are without power and may not have service restored until next week.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service says freezing rain is possible Friday for the northern two-thirds of the state and has issued freezing rain and winter weather advisories for the region. Ice accumulations are expected to be slight, but officials say only takes a thin coating of ice to make roads treacherous.
