Jackson EMC working to restore outages after winter storms

(JEFFERSON, GA. Dec. 9, 2018) – Heavy rainfall from Saturday’s storms saturated the ground, leaving trees susceptible to the storms accompanying strong winds, which blew down trees and limbs into power lines. Members across Jackson EMC’s 10-county service area began experiencing weather-related outages at 9 p.m. Linemen worked throughout the night to restore power to thousands of members. At 1 a.m., 3,990 members were without power.

As of 9 a.m., 240 members remain without power in Hall (169), Jackson (26), Lumpkin (19), Banks (17) Gwinnett (8) and Madison (1) counties.

Line crews continue to work restoring these outages as quickly as conditions and safety allow.
