FACTBOX-Over 200,000 still without power from Hurricane Delta on U.S. Gulf Coast

    Oct 12 (Reuters) - Over 200,000 homes and businesses were still without
power on Monday in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi after Hurricane Delta
slammed into the Gulf Coast late on Friday, according to local utilities.
    That is down from a total of more than 878,000 customers affected by
the storm at the peak, according to federal energy data.
    Entergy Corp's Louisiana unit, the hardest hit utility, said it
had already restored power to over 250,000 of the roughly 320,000 customers
Delta left without service.
    Entergy said on its website that it has a team of about 8,500
responding to remaining outages in Louisiana and expects to restore service
to most within a couple of days. The company, however, warned that it may
take until Oct. 18 to restore some customers in the hardest hit areas.
