BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Hundreds of Mississippi Power customers in Biloxi were without power after early-morning storms rolled through the coast Sunday.

The outage affected residents and businesses in a neighborhood on the east end of Pass Road, east of Beauvoir Road.

According to the electric company, the outage began at 7:18 a.m. and was expected to last until 9:30 a.m. Mississippi Power says the outage was due to a problem with electrical equipment, but they are working to restore it as soon as possible. Many areas affected by outages earlier this morning have already been restored.
