Mississippi Power started working out a plan for possible restoration efforts.
The storm directors met, requesting outside resources to fix down power lines. They were also preparing each employee for the storm since every employee has a storm role and can be different from their regular role.
The Mississippi Power employees that traveled to Lake Charles to assist in restoration from Hurricane Laura have also returned. Mississippi Power Spokesman Jeff Shepard said, “So they arrived home safely yesterday after spending about two weeks in Louisiana working in southwest Louisiana in and around the Lake Charles area. So they have time to go home and get some rest and again if need be and we get called in to do some active restoration efforts they be a part of that as we work to serve our customers.”
Mississippi Power encourages residents to visit the outage map at mspower.com and sign up so they can receive outage alerts.
If you have portable chargers make sure they are fully charged and if you’re using a generator know how to safely operate it.
