More than 3,000 MLGW customers lost power Friday afternoon.

Heavy rain and strong winds moved through the Mid-South as remnants of tropical depression Bill entered the area. After the recent storm, the MLGW outage map reported several outages.

MLGW said the weather caused some of the outages, but a car crash caused the majority. 

The car in question went off the road and crashed into a power pole near the intersection of E. Holmes Road and Getwell Road.

The heaviest outages happened in Bartlett. It's not clear when all power will return, but the Bartlett areas are expected to have power restored by 9:30 p.m.
