PINE BELT (WDAM) - Mississippi Power will suspend restoration crews tonight after winter weather left many in the Pine Belt without power.

For residents of Jones County without power, the Jones County emergency FEMA shelter will be open until the cold weather has passed. The Jones County FEMA 361 Shelter is located at: 1425 Ellisville Blvd in Laurel.
