Miss. utilities chipping away at power outages

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi utilities are chipping away at power outages around the state as Isaac weary residents begin the recovery from Isaac.

The Electric Power Associations of Mississippi, which had the largest number of outages, reports 12,160 customers without service early Saturday. Included in this figure are approximately 950 meters that can't be reconnected because of flooding or damage.

Entergy Mississippi reported 13,919 customers without serviced as of 9 a.m. Friday. Total system outages, including Louisiana and Arkansas topped 437,000.

Mississippi Power Co. said it had restored power to all its customers who could receive it just before midnight Thursday. The Southern Co. unit said that at points during the storm, nearly one third of its 186,000 customers lost power.
