Lightning strike kills phones at Hancock Co. Annex

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - The phone lines are down at the new Hancock County Annex on Highway 90 in Bay Saint Louis. County officials tell us the building apparently took a lightning hit when that storm system rolled through Thursday.

So, if you need to do business with any of Hancock county's administrative offices, the chancery clerk, tax assessor or anyone else at the government annex, you can stop by. The annex building and government offices are open Friday.

If you need tax information, there is a tax office in the Kiln you can call. The number is (228) 255-8746.
