Power outage in Pike County

McComb E-J interviewed Jim Hedges of Entergy regarding power outages in Pike, Walthall, and Amite counties. An estimated 6500 households and business have lost power, and Hedges told E-J, “it’s going to be several days” before power is fully restored in the area.

“More people have power than don’t have power, and I hope it remains that way throughout the duration.” …
“There have been times where we have been restoring power, but for now, we’re just scouting.” “With the wind, it’s just not safe for us to get our buckets out there.”

We’re operating on generator power here in Edgewood subdivision. Hopefully,power will be restored soon. But, remembering the post-Katrina outage, a day or so shouldn’t be too bad.

To the linemen of Entergy and Magnolia EPA, “Thanks for all you do. Be careful out there.”
