In 10 minutes it's lights out in Diamondhead

The lights are about to go out for 1,800 South Mississippi homeowners. At 4:30 pm, Coast Electric notified WLOX that some Diamondhead customers would lose power in about ten minutes.

Coast Electric officials said a car hit a pole on Kapalama Drive this afternoon and the pole will have to be replaced.

Officials said the work will cause a power outage in the northeastern section of Diamondhead for about an hour and a half.

Residents are urged to call 1-877-769-2372 if they have any questions.
