CenterPoint Energy released an updated outage map based on feedback from customers whose power had not been restored, while Entergy restored about 50% of power to Montgomery County residents.

According to CenterPoint’s power outage tracker, more than 1.1 million people in Houston were still without power as of 8:11 p.m. on July 10. The company estimates that many people could remain without power through July 14.

CenterPoint has released an updated version of its map, outlining the various stages of energy restoration in the Greater Houston area.

A new neon green section of the map highlights “live with potential outage” areas. In these areas, CenterPoint believes power has been restored. However, there may be localized property damage that prevents full restoration.

  • Dark green: power restored
  • Fluorescent green: live with potential nested fault
  • Blue: assigned to repair
  • Orange: damage is being assessed

On social media, several Houston-area residents reported that areas previously labeled as having power were incorrect, prompting a change on the outage map.

Entergy Texas sent out a press release on July 10 stating that 50% of its customers in the affected areas have received power and that the company expects to have 75% power restored by July 12. There are currently 124,146 Entergy customers still without power as of this writing.

The area is under a heat advisory, according to the National Weather Service, with a heat index expected to reach 106 degrees through July 11. All counties affected by Hurricane Beryl have opened cooling centers for residents.
