Nearly 100 employees from MS Power are on the road to Conyers, Georgia where they will spend the night tonight and wait on specific assignments to aid in the restoration process following Hurricane Florence. We wish them safe travels, and our thoughts and safe wishes are with all of those in the path of the storm.
Mississippi has sent a couple of 21-member swiftwater rescue teams to help with possible flash flooding in Virginia as Hurricane Florence moves in. And the State Health Department has mobilized a group of nurses to help staff evacuee shelters in North Carolina and a medical team that'll be operating out of its own bus. The Mississippi National Guard had already committed two of its heavy-lift helicopters to the hurricane zone.
Members of Entergy, the Red Cross and many others from MS are stepping up to help, however they can.
