Snow storm leaves some without power

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The utility companies are keeping a close eye on how much snow has fallen.  That's because the weight of the snow on trees could fall onto power lines and knock out your electricity.

David Burnette, customer service manager for Entergy Arkansas said there are a few sporadic power outages, but for the most part things are looking bright.

"Currently we are only showing a few customers out that are around our Harrisburg area and we're also showing about 15 customers out in and around the Monette area.  We have crews that are out working on those areas and hopefully by nightfall we will have those customers on," said Burnette.
