Arkansas' largest utility supplier warned Wednesday that it could be 2013 before it can restore power to all of its customers who lost electricity in a blizzard that dumped a foot of snow on some areas and knocked down trees and power lines throughout the state.
Two Arkansans died in a weather-related accident Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.
While the snow stopped by midday Wednesday, trouble remained for power crews trying to restore service to more than 200,000 homes and businesses.
Before damage assessments were even finished, Entergy Arkansas said that based on the most recent comparable storm — during the 2000 holiday season — some power could be out until Jan. 1 or later.
