Strong winds brought trees down on power lines this morning. Currently over 1900 members are without power, primarily in northern Gilmer County where trees have brought a three phase line down in two places, resulting in 1484 members out in that county. Other outages are scattered throughout our service area, including Pickens County where 200 members are without power near the Pickens/Gilmer county line.
Crews are working and all power will be restored as soon as is safely possible. Remember: never go near a downed power line and always assume they are still energized. To report a power outage, please call 706-253-0359 OR 706-276-0359 OR 706-864-0359. Please remember our social media sites are not monitored for outage reporting and you must call through the automated outage response system to have your call documented and included in our data count. Thank you for your patience.
