Mississippi Power thinks that all its customers who can receive power will have it restored by the end of the day Sunday, less than two weeks after Katrina stormed through here. The company says it's restored power to 54 percent of its customers. Here are the company's timelines for when it thinks power will be restored: Sept. 6: Ocean Springs Sept. 7: Leakesville, Lucedale, Meridian, Richton Sept. 8: Bay St. Louis, Long Beach, Wiggins/Saucier Sept. 9: Pascagoula, Moss Point, Pass Christian, DeLisle Sept. 10: Hattiesburg, Laurel Sept. 11: Biloxi, Gulfport, Picayune, Poplarville If customers don't receive power on that schedule, try to call (800) ITS-DARK (800-487-3275).

For the next hurricane rita ; the easy way to keep going.
