(WMC-TV) - Hundreds of Mid-Southerners were still without power as of Monday afternoon.
Crews in north Mississippi remain hard at work trying to get the lights turned on for an estimated 1,000 residents who have been without power for about 48 hours.
"No lights for the last two days," said resident Maurice Jenkins. "Can't wash dishes because we don't have no water. We've got plates and stuff left from the last two days."
Ricky Stewart chopped wood to keep two families warm under his roof.
"Out here we're on a well so we've got no water and no electric; whenever you have no electric you have no water either," he said.
His neighbor is lucky enough to have a generator, but several others remained in the dark Monday morning.
"This morning when I called there was 1,500 including this area," said Stewart.
