YAZOO CITY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Authorities are revealing an issue at a Mississippi prison that's been going on for almost a week.

They say that the low security institution at the Federal Correctional Complex has been without regular electrical power since June 15th.

Generators have been brought in and are providing power to most buildings, and industrial fans are being used throughout the institution for cooling. 

Medical care, laundry services, and meals are being provided to inmates. 

They tell us that inmate movement is still somewhat limited, but recreation and leisure activities have returned to normal schedules.  

For now visitation and other programming have been suspended. 

The Warden and staff are reportedly communicating with the inmates and providing information to them regarding progress being made to rectify the situation.
