Local family of linemen feels the pressure of power outages

As Georgia Power and other utilities continue restoring power around the state in Hurricane Irma's wake, Gov. Nathan Deal said on Thursday the storm's damage is so widespread it's hard to tell which areas were hit the hardest.

Georgia Power said that many of these men and women travel far away from their homes and families often for weeks at a time. Exceptions to these estimates could occur in areas impacted by tornadoes, severe flooding and other extreme conditions.

Georgia Power estimated about 75,000 of a 920,000 impacted customers remain without electricity, the company posted on Facebook late Thursday.

A spokeswoman for Georgia Power Company says an Arkansas man was injured while helping restore power in Georgia following Hurricane Irma.

Crews are working to rehang 200 miles of line taken down and replace more than 1,000 damaged power poles.

"The injured lineman was not a Georgia Power employee".

The company has already restored power to more than 60 percent of impacted customers who can accept power and expects to have power restored for almost 95 percent of impacted customers who can accept power by Sunday night, September 17. Value, Reliability, Customer Service and Stewardship are the cornerstones of the company's promise to 2.5 million customers in all but four of Georgia's 159 counties.
