Power Outage Forces Group In Raymond To Scramble

Downed power lines and broken power poles knocked out traffic lights near Raymond, turning intersections into four way stops.
And over at the nearby Mississippi State University’s extension service, the power outage left dark a meeting room to be used for a long-planned teachers workshop.
"We've been without power all morning; it looks like throughout the day,” said Lynn Porter, Hinds County Soil & Water Conservation District Administrator.
The outage forced organizers to carry on the environmental education training outside the building without the help of modern technology.
“So we're literally taking a step back to the dark ages, said Porter, who’s
hosted the annual three-day workshop for the past 29 years.
“This is the very first time we've had to do the workshop in the dark," she said.
