2/17 10:00 p.m. - Update: more than 33,000 restored since 7 a.m.

Jackson EMC personnel have since 7 a.m. today restored power to 33,240 customers. Crews will be working through the night to return power to the 33,535 customers still without power. The cooperative will reassess and regroup in the morning and attack the outages again with additional resources from neighboring EMCs, added to the 350 workers already assisting in the restoration work.

We estimate the vast majority of remaining outages will be repaired by late Wednesday, with some restored sooner depending on the progress crews can make. We will resume outage updates tomorrow morning.
