Georgia Power Update from 6 pm Monday

Hurricane Irma continues to impact service to Georgia Power customers across the state. The company is responding to these outages where possible, but in many cases our approximately 5,500 personnel from the company, other Southern Company operating companies and assisting utilities must wait for the high winds to subside before they can safely make repairs to our system. As expected, Irma has taken a more westerly track than was predicted on Friday.  All of Georgia, including the Metro Atlanta area, is experiencing high winds and heavy rains.  As of 5 p.m. Monday, there are more than 900,000 customers (almost 50% of our total customers) without power in Georgia and over 7,000 individual cases of damage (including broken poles and lines) the company is working to repair.  The damage and outages are widespread across the state with the hurricane impacting service to customers around Savannah, Columbus, Metro Atlanta and beyond.

Over the last few hours, conditions in the Metro Atlanta area have deteriorated rapidly with steadily increasing wind speeds.  As expected the winds have caused outages in our area to increase significantly.  Currently Hurricane Irma has interrupted service to nearly 400,000 customers in the Metro Atlanta region.  As the higher winds move through the area this evening, we expect these numbers to increase.  As you may recall, we made the decision to hold all Georgia Power resources at our local offices so that we can respond to any damage in metro Atlanta. Once conditions are safe, our crews will begin to assess the damage and begin repair to our system and restore electric service to our customers.
