A heavy thunder storm knocked out power to about 800 homes late Tuesday in Columbus, Georgia Power Co. said.
Most of the outages are in the Green Island neighborhood but some are scattered in downtown, along Warm Springs Road and other areas.
On its web site, Georgia Power said a fallen tree caused most outages along River Road. Power lines also were down along Second Avenue near the Government Center.
Power is expected to be restored to most of the homes by 11 p.m., according to Georgia Power.
