MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, Ark. (KAIT) - Power is back on for Entergy Arkansas customers after a vehicle struck power equipment Tuesday Afternoon.

At 7 p.m. Tuesday 1,732 customers were without power in the Manila area.

The outage affected people west of Highway 119 south of Leachville along Highway 18 into the city of Manila and areas south of the town along Highway 77 and Highway 18.

Entergy Arkansas expected power to be restored by 9 p.m. Tuesday.

The Manila Police Department asked residents to “keep water usage to a minimum until power is restored,” as the “generator is working to keep up with water demands due to the outage.”
