Entergy Corp officials on Thursday said power should be restored in 70 percent of the Louisiana parishes where Entergy supplies power within one week as thousands of workers continue to repair damage from Hurricane Gustav which slammed the state's coast Monday, reported Reuters.

Entergy's system, which serves much of the nation's energy infrastructure along the Gulf Coast, was hard-hit.

Entergy officials said transmission service has been restored to 11 of 12 refiners in its territory and enough power should be available to the refiners to allow them to restart operations.
