TUPELO, Mississippi — Sunshine, warmer temperatures and road crews have allowed traffic to resume on most major roads across north Mississippi.

At the same time, improving conditions have allowed emergency crews to restore power. At the peak of the storm, Ron Stewart of the Electric Power Associations of Mississippi says more than 30,000 customers were without electricity.

In Lee and Itawamba counties, more than 3,200 homes served by Tombigbee Electric Power Association lost power Wednesday evening.

TEPA director Bill Long tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal ( power was restored to around 2,200 of those homes by midnight.

Snow, sleet, ice and slush on the roads led to countless wrecks and cars sliding off the road, but law enforcement have not reported any major injuries in north Mississippi.
