Ark. utility sends workers to help Miss. repairs

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' largest electrical utility, Entergy Arkansas Inc., says it has sent 75 company line workers and support personnel to Mississippi to help restore power disrupted by a major tornado.

A news release from Entergy Arkansas said the workers left Sunday morning from service centers across the state to travel to Yazoo City, Miss., the area hardest hit by Saturday's tornado.

Saturday's storms killed at least 10 people in Mississippi, four of them in the Yazoo City area about 45 miles north of Jackson.
