(PRESS RELEASE) – We have significant damage in Noxubee County especially in area around and north east of Shuqualak following the track of the tornado. Estimates right now say 50 plus broken poles, extensive wire down, damage is reported to TVA lines in the area as well. There is a chance that 4-County members living in those areas may not get power restored tonight. It depends on the severity of the damage. We are sending all available crews.We also have significant outages in the Pheba area of Clay. Straight line winds reportedly took down trees and poles there.
Outages as of 1:45 pm
*Crews are working as quickly as they can to remove downed lines that are blocking emergency crews. North East of Shuqualak and College Street suffered the bulk of damage from the tornado that blew right down the street. While crews work to fixed down lines there is a chance some living in the severely damaged area will not have power Thursday night.
