STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA)- 4- County Electric employees were out Tuesday restoring power to homes in Highland Plantation.
Employees said about half of the residents living in the gated community lost power overnight. Many people also experienced flooding in this area.
City crews cleaned up most of the water early in the morning. Resident, Ian said he’s grateful the only thing he lost was electricity during the storm.
“It wasn’t bad as I thought it was. At least my house didn’t get blown down or nothing so I’m straight with that,” he said.
Starkville Police ask that you take alternate routes today if you find yourself heading towards flooded areas.
