8:00 Friday Outage Update: Now Under 1,000 Remaining

Jackson EMC has restored power to all but 933 customers. We have restored nearly 4,000 customers since 5:00 p.m. yesterday; 75,000 since the start of the storm.

As of 8:00 a.m., we currently have the following outages: 

Banks                    102
Barrow                   72
Clarke                    2
Gwinnett                0
Hall                       428         
Jackson                193
Lumpkin               139
Madison               0

Today, we will be restoring the remaining isolated outages, and feel confident we will restore power to the remainder of our customers by the end of the day, with the possible exception of customers who have damage to their service entrance, which will require a private electrician.  

Any customer who feels they still have an unsafe situation should report it at the cooperative’s website, www.jacksonemc.com, or by calling 1-800-245-4044.
