Georgia Power prepared for Tropical Storm Zeta

ATLANTA, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --A As Tropical Storm Zeta continues to strengthen as it tracks towards the Gulf Coast, Georgia Power is prepared to respond to any service interruptions that may occur later this week as the storm moves into middle and north Georgia. Due to already saturated soil and possible high winds, Zeta is likely to bring down trees that could cause outages. Customers are encouraged to use this time to prepare and keep safety in mind when threatened with possible dangerous conditions and storm damage. Georgia Power continues monitoring the changing weather around the clock and has the ability to coordinate with other utilities to field requests for assistance through the mutual assistance network when necessary.

Hurricane season continues through November
With the official hurricane season continuing through November 30, Georgia Power offers the following storm preparedness tips:A 

Before a Storm:A  Know your risks of flooding and tropical storm or hurricane strength winds. Check your emergency kit, unplug major appliances and charge cell phones in case you lose power.



During a Storm:A Have several ways to receive emergency notifications and weather updates. If your area is under an evacuation order, follow safety orders from local officials immediately.



After a Storm:A Never touch any downed or low-hanging wire, including telephone or TV wires that touch a power line. Never pull tree limbs off power lines or enter areas with debris or downed trees as downed power lines may be buried in wreckage. Additionally, do not walk or drive through standing water as it may conceal live wires brought down by the storm.A 

Before severe weather strikes, customers are encouraged to become familiar with Georgia Power's Outage Map on www.georgiapower.com that makes tracking and reporting outage information on the go even easier. The Outage Map automatically adjusts to function on any desktop, handheld or mobile device and has direct access to Georgia Power's social media channels for quick engagement with customer service representatives.
