Some get heat the old-fashioned way

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – With power outages all over the city of Albany, some people improvised to stay warm.

A fire was burning in a barrel in the 500 block of Poplar Street around 11:00AM. Eugene Kennedy and his friends say the power went out at 4:00AM.

They broke apart some wooden crates and made a fire to stay warm.

"We can't cook no coffee, we can't get no heat, and we hungry 'cause we can't cook," Kennedy said.

Kennedy says he was most concerned about his elderly and young neighbors who were cold and without power for extended amounts of time.
