SRE sends linemen to Southern Pine Electric to aid storm restoration

Singing River Electric has 14 linemen in route to Taylorsville, Miss., to assist Southern Pine Electric with power restoration. Southern Pine’s service area was hit extremely hard by severe storms the last few days. Their outage count this morning was 25,290.

“Our linemen have been working long hours restoring power to Singing River Electric members after the severe weather, and they are ready to do the same for Southern Pine and their members,” said Singing River Electric General Manager and CEO Brian Hughey. “They will begin work upon arrival this morning and help get Southern Pine’s outage count to zero.”
