EMCs WORK OVERNIGHT TO RESTORE POWER
TUCKER, GA – At 4:30 a.m., EMCs are reporting 144,000 customers without power, down from 177,000 last evening. Hurricane Michael caused significant damage to both the electric transmission and distribution infrastructure, something Georgia has not experienced in decades.
Since yesterday, EMCs have been battling tough conditions and working to repair severe damage to high voltage transmission lines, substations, distribution lines, power poles and other equipment. Local crews have been joined by hundreds of out-of-state crews, and more are expected. They will work side-by-side with local EMCs to make outage repairs as quickly as safety practices and conditions allow.
