ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Georgia Power officials say their crews are prepared to fix any power outages that may occur during the storm.     

They say all their Customer Service reps will report to work tomorrow at 8 a.m. with their bags packed for five days to respond to any emergency situations.  They say crews have fueled up their tanks and will have snow chains available in their vehicles.

"The best laid plans provide big dividends for us because we will be ready to roll whenever, wherever, when an event happens," said Henry Everson.       

Georgia Power officials say they will continue to monitor the weather closely. To see their cold weather tips and a real-time map of power outages in the area click here.
