BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

WLOX is back on the air after an early morning power outage that hit our DeBuys Road studios and about 200 other customers. It happened around 4:35am, just as Good Morning Mississippi was going on the air.

Mississippi Power crews were able to restore power by 8am. But WLOX's problems lasted a little longer. A generator at the station, which normally kicks in for such emergencies, failed Monday morning. The generator had recently been tested before the start of hurricane season.

The Good Morning Mississippi news team stayed busy all morning on WLOX.com, Facebook and Twitter, getting news updates to all our viewers. News anchor Rhonda Weidner also made the rounds at several coast radio stations explaining why WLOX was off the air.
