SHANNON, Miss. (WTVA) - Residents in a Shannon neighborhood are happy their power was restored after they said their landlord shut it off days ago.
"I’m blessed that it’s back on, and we’ve got it back because that’s one less thing to worry about,” Landon Jordan said.
Jordan was recently laid off from his job as a result of the coronavirus and said living without electricity added more stress to an already stressful situation.
Taz Walker reached out to WTVA about the situation and said he’s glad Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley stepped in to stop this from happening to more people.
“I want to thank Brandon Presley for establishing that and making it known that it wasn’t right to turn off people's electricity at this time", Walker said.
Presley requested that the Mississippi Center for Justice begin filing for temporary restraining orders
Although residents are thankful to have power restored, some said they are worried about how much they will have to pay when the 60-day restriction is up.
