ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Water, Gas, and Light crews are busy right now trying to restore power all over Albany. Traffic lights have been out at Jefferson, Oglethorpe, and several intersections on North Slappey.
The winter storm cut right through Southwest Georgia. The freezing temperatures made parts of Albany look like a winter wonderland.
Emergency workers were prepared. "Right now, it's not as bad as we thought," said Larry Cook.
He is the Director of Public Works, and paid close attention to the storm. "I've been monitoring the storm all night. At midnight ,when it started to freeze, I got in my car and drove to inspect the roads," said Cook.
While on the roads, he noticed the streets weren't the problem. Freezing rain on power lines caused outages all over the city.
"I woke up at 6 am this morning and it was off. But at 7 o'clock, I heard the trucks behind my house trying to fix it," said Loretta Mack.
Water, Gas, and Light crews have been working since for trying to restore power. Crews had to use chain saws four branches that were close to power lines.
In the event of severe weather, There's no such thing as being over prepared. "I think it's better to be prepared, because I woke up and I didn't even have a flashlight," said Mack.
The rain is over, but there's a lot of work happening to restore power.
