Entergy Mississippi Restores Power After Storms
Severe thunderstorms caused outages Friday night and Saturday morning throughout much of Entergy Mississippi’s service area. As of 1 p.m., about 32,000 customers are without power.
The hardest-hit areas are in the Delta and North Mississippi, in a line spanning from Greenville northeast to Hernando. We also have scattered outages south of Hwy. 82. Our crews are assessing damage and restoring service as quickly and safely as possible. We have identified more than 300 poles that need to be replaced as a result of storm damage. More than 200 additional workers have been brought in to assist with restoration efforts.
Customers are urged to use precaution and stay away from downed power lines, and any debris that may be around it as the line may still be energized. Customers should contact Entergy immediately by calling 1-800-9OUTAGE to report downed lines. For more emergency tips, visit the Entergy Storm Center.
