Ga. Power workers help restore electricity

July 12, 2005

Valdosta - Georgia Power crews from here in South Georgia are helping restore power to towns struck by Hurricane Dennis.

Crews from Valdosta, Albany, Tifton, and Bainbridge headed to Pensacola Tuesday. About 26 Georgia Power workers left Monday to help crews in Florida repair the damage Dennis left behind.

"The Gulf is reporting that they hope to have everybody's power back on by early next week, so they're going to be there restoring power, putting up poles,doing whatever is needed," said Marshall Conner.

Georgia Power officials say they don't anticipate sending any more crews to Florida, but if they're needed, they have more workers on standby.
