U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provide generators for critical areas

Posted: Updated:
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Army Corps of Engineers is on a mission to help restore power.

Several trucks were packed with generators at Camp Shelby Wednesday morning. Engineers had more than 50 generators waiting to be transported to critical areas. The generators aren't going to people's homes. They're for hospitals, schools and other public facilities that don't have power.

"When all the power lines go down it can take several weeks for power to be restored back to some of these outline communities. What we can do is we can go in and  put power back on to the critical places like, shelters, schools. So, some form of normalcy can get back to those communities, and they can get back to their lives," said Sergeant First Class, Douglas Eshenbaugh.
