GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Mississippi Power crews from the Mississippi Gulf Coast are among those helping to restore power in Pensacola, FL.

As of Wednesday morning, nearly 30,000 Gulf Power customers were without power after severe storms passed through the southeast Tuesday.

"Mississippi Power crews have assisted in several recent restoration efforts, already traveling to Pensacola in January, so they are very familiar with the distribution system," said Distribution and Storm Director Randall Pinkston. "We are able to send crews to Florida to provide assistance, while still meeting the service and reliability needs of our customers here in Mississippi."

After traveling to the Florida Gulf Coast, Mississippi Power employees will receive their work assignments and locations from Gulf Power operations management.
