BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

About 30 Mississippi Power customers in east Biloxi are without electricity after a dump truck pulled down power lines at Bayview St. and Lee St.

Maj. Jim Adamo, with the Biloxi Police Department, said a gravel truck with its bed up caught a utility pole guide wire and pulled everything down. No injuries were reported.

A power company spokesman said repair crews will need about four hours to restore power.

Biloxi police are urging drivers to avoid the area while the repairs are going on. The intersection will be closed until repairs are complete.
