Crews have worked through the night battling the destruction Tropical Storm Ida brought with her yesterday. We have already replaced several broken poles.
Outages were widespread, occurring all across our service area. 777 members in 25 separate areas are currently out of power in Cherokee, Gilmer, Lumpkin, Murray and Pickens counties.
All across our service area trees fell bringing down power lines and/or blocking roadways. This had to be cleared before the damage could be assessed and restoration work could begin. In some cases, the roads were flooded causing a delay in the restoration process.
At the present time, we anticipate all outages that have already been assessed will be restored before nightfall. The exception is those who may have damage to their individual services that require repairs on their part before we can restore the power. One thing of concern is the potential for additional outages to occur today caused by winds, more trees falling from the saturated ground, etc.
In the Conasauga Road area, the road was flooded last night, preventing our crews from getting in there to assess the damage. Once the damage assessment has been completed, we will be able to provide more information.
Please remember to stay away from any downed power lines. Stay clear to stay safe. We thank you for your patience as we continue our restoration work today. All power will be restored as soon as is safely possible.
