In late August, Hurricane Idalia made landfall as a Category 3 hurricane on the Gulf Coast of Florida and weakened to a tropical storm as it traveled through parts of southern Georgia, providing heavy rain and strong winds resulting in power outages. Crews and resources across the system mobilized to swiftly restore power and repair damage to gas lines for the communities we serve that were affected by the storm.
The restoration team consisted of more than 5,500 personnel at the height of the response. The crew made significant progress as they worked through the night to restore service to more than 250,000 customers since the peak of the storm on the morning of August 30.
Within 72 hours, unprecedented restoration efforts were completed to restore power to the majority of customers in the Savannah, Brunswick, Tifton, Valdosta and Waycross areas.
Here’s how the system responded:
