Wet spring is causing issuesAfter an already heavy rain season, two recent storms have caused even more damage and delays for the county.
A storm on May 24 caused 2,700 Entergy customers to lose power as strong winds took down power lines. Friday night's sudden storm also caused outages with over 700 reported without power that night.
The intense rains have also caused ongoing issues with the county roads. County Judge Dale Freeman said he is dealing with new wash outs every week. "It's terrible," he said.
