Albany-- WG&L crews are working to restore any power to homes across the city. It could take days to clean up the fallen trees. The threat of falling trees isn't over yet. The wet ground could cause others to fall in the next few days.

High winds moving in with Frances are blowing down power lines. Water, Gas and Light employees worked to repair lines on Oglethorpe Blvd. Monday.

Albany Police re-routed traffic in that area until the downed lines were repaired. WG&L workers also repaired lines on Tift Avenue in East Albany and several other places all over town.

No one at WG&L could tell us how many people in Albany lost power or how many lines they had repaired.

Georgia Power Company customers aren't the only ones without power today. A spokeswoman for the Georgia Electric Membership Corporation says some 100,000 customers are without power statewide, including about 45,000 in metro Atlanta.

A total of 3.9 million residential and commercial customers are served by the 42 individual EMCs in the state.

Americus has seen its share of rain in the past 24 hours and it's still coming down. So far, five inches of rain has dropped over the past 24 hours.
