Cold weather brings power outage

Posted: Updated:
LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

Some Leesburg residents had some cold to deal with inside their homes when the grid was overloaded and they lost electricity.

At its peak, the outage covered about 300 residents and businesses.

Georgia Power's system was apparently overwhelmed by all the heater usage and the electricity went out for a little while.

At last report, buildings without power were sporadic, and most power had been restored.
