TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- Tennessee Valley Authority crews continue work to repair damage to a transmission line in north Tupelo.
Tombigbee Electric Power Association Manager Bill Long says the repairs will help the utility restore power to nearly 8200 people still without power in Lee and Itawamba County.
Long says he expected the work to be completed between 6 p.m. and midnight.
He says they should allow for a majority of Tombigbee's customers to have electric power tonight.
Long says some customers may be out of power until sometime tomorrow.
