COVINGTON COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Weather has delayed a local power association's planned power outage project scheduled for Tuesday. 

The power outage has been rescheduled, weather permitting, for May 18 or 19. If both those dates experience any weather delays, the power outage will occur next week on May 24 or 25. 

About 900 customers of the Southern Pine Electric Power Association will be affected by the outages. 

The outages will occur between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Some of the primary roads included in the project are:

  • U.S. 49
  • Seminary-Sumrall Road
  • Smyrna Road
  • McDonald Chapel Road
  • Seminary-Mike Conner Road
  • Oakdale Church Road

Southern Pine encourages those affected by the project, especially those with special medical needs, to make some contingency plans for the outage periods.
