Power lines down in Amory

According to the Amory Electric Department, power is out for between 25 and 30 residents in the vicinity of Earl Frye Boulevard and McDonalds due to high winds from a storm that swept through the area earlier this morning. Crews are on the scene now and one lane of traffic on Highway 278 will be temporarily shut down so the linemen can restore power. The electric department expects the power to be restored and the lane of traffic to reopen shortly after noon.
