Valdosta - Hundreds of people were without power because of storms overnight.

A limb fell on a power line on Jerry Jones Road around 4:00 Wednesday morning, and knocked out power to about 1,300 Georgia Power Customers. People living in Remerton and in neighborhoods between Gornto and Baytree Roads were effected.

Power was restored to most of the homes within an hour and a half. "Around 4:30 we had some of the customers back on, and approximately 80 minutes after the outage occured, we had all of the customers back on," said Charles Birchmore, Engineering Supervisor.

Georgia Power workers responded to six different widespread power outage incidents Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
