ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

About 230,000 Georgia power customers in Georgia don't have any electricity. Georgia Power and EMC crews around the state have already restored power to about that many customers today. Crews from south Georgia are helping. Georgia Power Area Manager Jay Smith says they're prepared to stay in affected areas for a week.

"We've got the resources that are there available to act if needed, they are needed so right now feel like everything is going very well," said Jay Smith, Georgia Power.

This is the worst ice storm in Georgia since 2000 when more than 500,000 homes and businesses lost power and damages topped 35 million dollars.
