During the rain

VPD Officers Russell Dorsey and David Gladney direct traffic around a tree blocking the southbound lanes of Mission 66 Tuesday. Vicksburg received 1.34 inches of rain in about one hour, knocking down a few trees and limbs, bringing some flashflooding on such low-lying streets as Pemberton Square Boulevard and Halls Ferry at Bowmar. About 800 Entergy Mississippi customers in Warren County were out of power by midnight, with about 300 out around Nailor Road where trees were reported down, Entergy spokesman Don Arnold said. Power was restored by this morning to all areas except Kings Point Island, where crews from West Monroe are assisting local utility personnel in restoring power, Arnold said.
