When it comes to helping our customers during times of natural disasters, Georgia Power is always ready to weather the storm with you. When Hurricane Michael made landfall in the state of Florida as a Category 4 hurricane, our power restoration efforts were ready.
Hurricane Michael entered the state of Georgia on the evening of Oct. 10, made its way through Central Georgia, and ultimately reached Augusta as a tropical storm on the morning of Oct. 11.
There has been significant damage due to high winds, heavy rain and fallen trees in the hardest hit areas, including Albany, Americus, Macon, Valdosta and Vidalia. To complete restoration as quickly and safely as possible, more than 5,800 personnel and crews from Georgia Power, other Southern Company operation companies and assisting utilities are working tirelessly to restore power to customers.
