YAZOO CITY, Miss. - Officials with the Yazoo City Low Federal Prison says power has been back on at the facility for almost a week now.
Prison officials told News Channel 12 on Tuesday that power was restored on June 25. The inmates lost power on June 15. Officials told us back then that the power failure happened due to an "unexplained power surge." The entire complex lost power. However, in restoring power, it was the "Low" facility's power that failed to return.
