Heavy showers knock out power

Posted: Updated:

Heavy rain, some occasional brilliant lightning, and sporadic powerful gusts of wind have been seen across South Georgia tonight.

A tropical weather system has dumped more than an inch of rain in most places across South Georgia.  

There have been reports of power outages across Albany and Lee County. Tree limbs knocked down power lines in the 1300 block of North Davis Street.

Firefighters and Water, Gas, and Light crews restored the power.

Heavy rain has caused some water standing on some low lying streets and historically flood prone areas.  And more heavy rain, maybe another couple of inches, is forecast for tomorrow.
