2,000 without power after North Georgia storms

As of 9:30 p.m. about 2,000 North Georgia EMC customers are without power across NGEMC’s seven-county territory, with the majority of the outages occurring in Gordon, Murray, and Whitfield counties.

Power outage numbers may increase as strong winds and thunderstorms continue through the night. Please stay away from downed lines and report them immediately to North Georgia EMC, your local power company or call 911.

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. Crews will remain on duty until all power has been restored.
