ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Tens of thousands of Georgians remained without power Tuesday night.

Georgia Power officials told us more than 52,000 customers remain in the dark.

In south Georgia, the biggest number of them are in Bainbridge with 1800 outages.

Albany has about 1,400. In Tifton the total is 741 and it's 606 in Valdosta.

Georgia Power says most customers should be back on by midnight Wednesday. Crews are being brought from other states to assist in restoring the power.

Mitchell EMC tells us they still have about 1,000 customers without power. That number is down from 7,000 which was reached during the peak of the storm.
