As of 9:30 p.m., approximately 3,500 North Georgia EMC customers are without power due to this evening’s thunderstorms and strong winds. While outages are scattered across NGEMC’s seven-county service territory, extensive damage has occurred in areas of Walker and Chattooga counties. Crews are working to clear many fallen trees and to repair numerous broken poles and downed power lines in these areas. Please stay away from downed lines and report them immediately to NGEMC, your local power company or call 911. Crews will remain on duty until all power has been restored.
NGEMC members may report outages through the NGEMC Mobile App, the NGEMC Mobile Web App, or by calling NGEMC and using the automated telephone outage reporting system. During widespread outages, customers may experience longer than normal wait times due to extremely high call volume.
