Crews are working to restore power in south Lee County.

Power was lost in the Eggville and Mooreville areas this evening for Tombigbee Electric Power Association customers. Approximately 3,000 are without power, according to Tombigbee general manager Bill Long.

Long said the outage is due to high usage, caused by extremely cold weather that hit the region overnight. Crews should be able to fully restore power tonight.

More information as it becomes available.
