BRAXTON, MS (WLBT) - Hundreds of Entergy customers were stuck in the dark Sunday night after severe thunderstorms knock out power to the entire town of Braxton in Simpson County.

A WLBT viewer snapped this picture of the sky on his cell phone as storm clouds moved into the area.

Power was knocked out around 5:30 this evening. According to Entergy Mississippi's website 468 customers are without Energy. Electric crews are on the ground working on the problem, but Entergy does not expect power to fully be restored until 2:00 Monday morning.
