Crews Working to Restore Power
Tuesday, 11 January 2011

January 11--  Altamaha EMC issued the following report Tuesday morning as crews worked to restore power in the aftermath of Sunday night's ice storm.

"Altamaha EMC crews continued to work through the night to restore power to members in our seven-county service area.  Progress was slow in some areas due to the number of downed trees on power lines.  We have several contract crews working alongside our crews to help clear fallen trees of the lines as quickly as possible.  The areas with the most power outages at this time are Emanuel and Treutlen counties and also in the East Laurens area.  We still have sporadic outages in areas of Toombs and Montgomery counties as well.  Our crews will continue to work to restore power today.  It is our hope to have every Altamaha EMC member’s power restored before dark today.

"We would like to remind motorist to use extreme caution when driving near areas where crews are working to restore power.  Altamaha EMC crews, GA Power crews and many contractors are working all over the local area and their safety is of utmost importance."
