About half of DeKalb County lost power due to Hurricane Irma

Georgia EMC said it had close to 300,000 customers without power.

As of 7 a.m. Wednesday, Georgia Power reported almost 345,000 of its customers were still affected.

Georgia utility companies are making headway with restoring power in the wake of Tropical Storm Irma. The highest number of outages Monday in Muscogee was 26,207.

The numbers are constantly changing as crews work to restore power in many neighborhoods.

"There is not a region within this state that has not been affected by some power outages", said Paul Bowers, Georgia Power president and CEO. Power crews are working around the clock so that number is likely less Wednesday morning.

Manchester City , while not having the worst group by any stretch of the imagination, will need a good start. Guardiola said: "The decision was he didn't play the last game and today he was not in the squad".

In response to Irma's damage, Georgia's EMCs brought in 4,000 workers from 13 other states to help with the repairs.

EMCs stress that damage from Irma is a historic outage event in Georgia and it will take days to completely replace or fix power lines and power poles in every corner of the state.

As a result of widespread damage and power outages due to high winds, heavy rain and fallen trees, Georgia Power officials predict restoration of electricity could take several days. Georgia EMC customers can find more information on their website.

This is one where the entire state of Georgia has been affected by this hurricane/tropical storm. "We will be bringing some customers back, but it may take a couple more days; it may take over a week to get customers back on", he said.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal lifted an evacuation order Tuesday for almost 540,000 coastal residents.
