Mississippi Power crews are now working to restore power to customers across the Coast.
Officials say much of their distribution systems and transmission lines suffered significant damage during Zeta.
Mississippi Power Spokesperson Jeff Shepard says getting the lights back on here in South Mississippi will be a multi-day event in some areas and crews from 11 states have come to assist with the restoration efforts. “Utilities all over the country are asking for resources, and so the extensive damage that was done to our power delivery system and with some of the issues with resource allocation right now, it’s kind of causing some problems with us being able to get as many people as we would normally get maybe on day one of a restoration.”
