We currently have 30133 consumers without power. These outages are widespread across portions of all ten counties we serve. The broken pole count is up to 30.
Outside crews have been called in to assist in our restoration efforts; to date, approx. 22 outside crews have arrived, bringing both manpower and equipment. These crews include line crews and right of way crews and are in addition to the 120+ who are employed full time by Amicalola EMC.
In addition, there are multiple employees working behind the scenes in our Dispatch Center coordinating the restoration efforts for the crews. There are also many working to provide communications and other services, both internal and external, and secure food and lodging for those who have come in to assist.

We thank you for your continued patience as we work to restore all power as soon as is safely possible. We know it is frustrating and inconvenient to be without electric service, but this restoration process is a massive undertaking and it is so widespread that is requires substantial manpower and enough time to safely perform all the necessary work.
