The head of New Albany Light, Gas, and Water Bill Mattox posted on Facebook about a mass power outage affecting Union and Tippah counties greatly.
“NALGW customers to the North of New Albany to Blue Mountain. We have lost the substation that serves this area. Our crew is at the station now. We know a snake was somehow involved! Hopefully the station has not sustained any serious damage and power can be restored fairly soon. I will try to provide updates as available.”
