Over 5,500 people are still without power in Hinds County after wind and storms ripped through Mississippi last night.

According to Clinton PIO, a transformer blew causing many of the power outages.

Most outages are around the Clinton and Springridge area. Entergy is not providing an exact time frame for when power will be restored to these areas.

Clinton PIO says there were numerous trees down across the city last night. Many of the trees were blocking roads.

Crews were out overnight working hard to remove trees and debris from the roads.

All trees have now been removed from the road and all streets are open.

No injuries have been reported.
