Below is an update on Mississippi Power’s Hurricane Zeta restoration effort as of 6:30 a.m., Nov. 2.

Tremendous progress was made overnight as crews continued to work safely round-the-clock. The company begins Day Five as a wrap-up day with approximately 5,000 customers without service with the majority of those outages in Gulfport.

The Mississippi Power Storm Team and the nearly 1,700 additional outside resources are attacking the Zeta restoration with the same level of energy and focus on safety as Day One.

Mississippi Power is deploying outside line crew resources from 18 states around the country such as North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Missouri, Virginia, Ohio and Arkansas.

Estimated restoration time of power restored to 95% of customers is by midnight on Monday night, Nov. 2.

Gulfport Bill Payment office will open today with normal business hours.
