Although the weather has cleared up beautifully and all the ice and snow is melting as of lunchtime Thursday, there is still a possibility of downed power lines across Coweta County.

If anyone sees any issues with downed power lines or fallen trees or limbs threatening to hit a power line, they have been asked to contact the power companies directly, according to Jay Jones, director of Coweta Emergency Management.

The numbers are:

• Georgia Power at 1-888-891-0938

• and Newnan Utilities at 770-683-5516.
