Georgia Power spokesman Robert Watkins said that most Columbus residents without power should have it restored soon.
Watkins said that as of 2:30 p.m. Wednesday there were 788 clients without power.
“We are expecting 95 percent of those to have power restored by Thursday night,” Watkins said.
Some might have to wait a day or two longer.
Watkins said Georgia Power is still hoping to get assistance from power companies in Alabama and Mississippi.
Watkins said there the outages are widespread throughout Columbus. Many are the result of downed power lines.
Watkins mentioned that about 139,000 are without power in Atlanta.
