Video: Starkville Power Outage
STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI)-Starkville church goers will need to set an extra alarm Saturday night. Starkville Electric Department will perform maintenance for a mainline and switch repair starting at midnight. The maintenance will cause a routine power outage that will only last five hours.
TVA Spokesman, Chris Stanley says, ” Remember to charge your cell phone batteries. Get an alarm clock that’s got a battery operated alarm on it, so you can go to church Sunday morning. Also, make sure you keep your refrigerator door closed. No midnight snacking this night so you can keep the food cold. Also, have a flashlight with you in case you need to get up and move around your house.”
This is a five year project that costs $20 million dollars.
