JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

If you were downtown on Wednesday morning you might have noticed that the power went out. Again. 

Spokeswoman for Entergy, Mara Hartmann, says that an Entergy employee working at a substation accidentally tripped a relay. A relay is a switch that opens and closes circuits.

More than 650 people were without power, which came back on in a matter of minutes.

On Monday, the power also went out for most of downtown. That outage was caused by birds.
