MLGW completes restoration effort in Hickory Hill
February 11, 2008
(February 11, 2008, 12:30 p.m.) MLGW completed its restoration efforts in the Hickory Hill area Sunday evening, five days after a deadly storm made its way through Shelby County and other parts of the Mid-South. More than 64,000 residential and business customers were without power in the wake of the storm.

While most residential MLGW customers had power by Saturday, some commercial customers remained without power until Sunday. There may still be a few customers that have private property damage that is preventing them receiving power. Once the necessary repairs are made, power will be restored to these addresses, as well.

Over the next six to eight weeks, MLGW will focus on rebuilding its infrastructure that was damaged in the storm.

"I want to thank our employees for working day and night to restore power to our customers in only five days after such a devastating storm," said MLGW President and CEO Jerry Collins, Jr. "We are also grateful to the out of town crews who assisted us during the restoration period. Most of all, we thank our customers for their patience, attentiveness to safety and the appreciation they've shown to our employees during a difficult process."
