Undated- Thousands of power company workers from across the southeast are on their way toward Florida. Nearly 500 Georgia Power crews are headed south. Georgia Power says it will stop the Atlanta crews in Brunswick, to wait out Charley and make sure their own customers have power.
After that, they too, will wait to see what happens in Florida before heading further south. The Red Cross is readying its disaster volunteers and supplies to aid hurricane-ravaged parts of the southeast.
Home Depot stores statewide are ready to assist in disaster relief. Albany's Home Depot in has not received a call from their corporate office to send supplies, but in case they get that call, they're ready to ship plywood, lumber, chainsaws and many other disaster relief items.
"We're in stock. We've got things in the store here, tarps, plastic sheeting, generators, things of that nature," said Store Manager Hank Williams. Disaster relief is one of Home Depot's major charities.
