While June 1 marks the beginning of the annual hurricane season, 2015 also marks the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, justifiably one of the worst natural disasters to ever strike the United States and was certainly the worst to ever impact Southeast Mississippi.
Getting the lights on and keeping the lights on is what Mississippi Power does and that was never more important than in the disastrous aftermath of Katrina. We demonstrated the extent of that commitment when our 1,200 employees worked to house, feed and lead 12,000 others to get the power restored to those who could receive it in just 12 days after Katrina.
Today, our approach to disaster preparation and recovery remains proactive to safely restore electric service to our customers as quickly as possible in a cost-effective manner. In addition, we want to be informed so that you can prepare and stay connected no matter the size of the storm or cause of an outage.
