Oct 30 (Reuters) - Over 1.1 million homes and businesses were still without power on Friday from Louisiana to North Carolina after Hurricane Zeta slammed into Louisiana late Wednesday and moved northeast across the U.S. Southeast, according to local utilities. That is down from around 3.0 million total customers affected by the storm. Entergy Corp's Louisiana utilities, which took the first hit from the storm and have the most current outages, said they restored power to over 150,000 of the roughly 480,000 customers affected. Most of the Entergy outages were in Jefferson and Orleans Parishes. The company said it has amassed a storm team of about 5,400 to respond to outages and will provide estimated restoration times by Friday evening. Separately, there were about 247,000 customers still without power in Oklahoma and Texas following ice storms earlier in the week.
