VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Heavy rains continue in Valdosta ahead of Hurricane Hermine.

Power outages are likely in the next 36 hours for most folks.

With the strong winds and heavy rain it is likely that limbs will fall down on power lines.

But a representative from Georgia Power said that crews will be working around the clock.

They are reminding all customers to know what is going on in their area and surrounding areas.

There is a outage map online that shows up to date outages.

If your power does go out, it can also tell you how long it is expected before the power comes back on.

The most important thing that Georgia Power representatives suggest is that after the storm customers don't touch or go near any power lines.

"We are just encouraging customers to be saved through this whole experience and we are trying to mobilize and have our resources in place so that we can respond to any outages that may occur," said Audrey King, GA Power region external affairs manager.

King suggest that you charge your cell phones now in case there is a power outage. 

If your power goes out, call 1-888-891-0938.

The WALB First Alert Weather Team will keep you updated on conditions on television, social media and online.
