Coast Electric update 

Coast Electric is still on target to energize 80 percent of its members who are able to accept service by the beginning of next week. Phone service has been restored at the Bay St. Louis, Gulfport and Picayune offices and they are accepting calls for general inquiries -- not for reports of outages since they are aware of them -- at (228) 467-6535, (228) 832-1761 or (601) 798-5013. Those offices will open on a limited basis starting next week. At this time, Coast Electric is concentrating all efforts on the restoration process and will not be sending out bills, collecting on due accounts or sending out disconnect notices until they are able to get the business offices up and running.

Be prepared for the next hurricane history or find another one that's similar. As the Boy Scouts say: "Be Prepared"!
Some people believe that to create is great but build is like changing the past forever... If you want to create a beautiful home Visit Fallbrook contractors and you can see what a little change can create..
