JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

About four hundred Entergy customers were in the dark Thursday night; 388 in Hinds County. 

Power lines were no match for two huge trees on Northside Drive and East Wood Road.

Our crew found damage in the Eastover Subdivision, where the trees fell onto the lines, knocking power out in the area.

"You could hear the big swoosh, and then you could feel it and the dog started barking and the electricity went out and so I came outside along with the other neighbors," said Kelly Collins, who lives in the area. "And no surprise, the old trees took the lines down." 

A handful of customers don't have lights on in Adams, Franklin, and Warren Counties.
