Zeta puts power to hundreds of thousands in Georgia


AUGUSTA, Ga (WRDW / WAGT) – Hundreds of thousands of Georgia electricity customers are hit by power outages this morning as the remains of Hurricane Zeta pass through the region

None of these outages were reported in the CSRA Most are in the Atlanta subway and in western Georgia

Georgia Power Co-ops have reported over 130,000 customers affected by outages, and Georgia Power has reported nearly 300,000

Power outages began to occur as Zeta crossed Georgia, with tropical storm force winds knocking down trees on power lines

Officials at Georgia EMC, a trade group primarily representing the state’s electric co-ops, have warned that blackouts could increase throughout the morning as strong winds and heavy rain contribute to the problems

The co-ops serving these areas are working from their storm contingency plans and will begin damage assessment and restoration work as soon as the most dangerous weather conditions shift

At the same time, co-ops in affected areas have organized additional teams and equipment from unaffected co-ops in Georgia, as well as teams from South Carolina and Tennessee, if needed, to speed up the restoration process. electricity
