Trees down, power out in much of Bridgeport after Tuesday’s storms

BRIDGEPORT, Ala. (WHNT) – Power is out in at least half of the town of Bridgeport, in northeast Jackson County near the Tennessee line.

An employee at Bridgeport Town Hall confirms there is no power there, or at the police department, which is running on a backup generator.  The mayor says half of the town is without power.

There are several power lines down throughout town, as well as many trees on homes and power lines.

North Alabama Electric Cooperative services this area.  WHNT News 19 reached out to the company to get more details on the effort to restore power.  Managers are out assessing the situation, a representative said.
