GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -
Members of Mississippi Power's storm team hit the road early Thursday morning headed to Arkansas to restore power to Entergy customers impacted by winter storm Euclid.
The crew is made up of 51 Mississippi Power employees from the Gulf Coast, Hattiesburg, Laurel and Meridian. It will take about eight hours for them to reach the Little Rock-Hot Springs area, which was one of the hardest hit areas by the storm.
"The call to duty is nothing new for our crews," said Distribution Manager Randall Pinkston. "As part of the Southeast Electric Exchange's Mutual Assistance program, we've dispatched line crews and support personnel to restore service in Savannah, GA, Baltimore, MD, and across New Jersey and Pennsylvania in 2012. Our crews are trained and conditioned to restore power in even the most extreme environments whether it be post-hurricane or after a snow storm."
Mississippi Power sister companies Gulf Power and Georgia Power also sent resources this morning. Total Southern Company support to Entergy at this time is 193 company line personnel and support, along with 120 contractor line personnel.
The restoration efforts could extend into early next week.
