Ga. Power, EMC making progress on outages

by Sarah Fay Campbell

Thursday night, Georgia Power reported that all customers in Coweta were expected to have power restored by noon on Friday. 

Coweta-Fayette EMC reported that crews were making significant progress, with a restoration around 7 p.m. cutting the number of outages in half. After power was restored to a large group of customers in the Moreland area, EMC had about 4,500 outages over its nine-county service area, according to Mary Ann Bell, vice president of public relations and communications. 

Bell said Thursday night that there were hopes to have power restored to quite a few more customers later Thursday night. 

Bell said earlier on Thursday that, while some customers might not get their power back on until Saturday, "hopefully we will be able to pick up the largest amount today" and Friday.
