VANCLEAVE, MS (WLOX) - Nearly 1,000 people in Vancleave were without power around 8:30 p.m. Thursday night.
Singing River Electric spokesperson Lori Freeman says the outages were due to broken poles.
Linemen worked to extract the broken poles, reset new ones, and re-string the power lines before electricity was able to flow to customers again. Shortly after 9 p.m., the SRE outage map reported that power had been restored to all but four customers.
At this time, it is not known what caused the poles to break.
