The online Storm Center, also available via the company's recently upgraded mobile website at GeorgiaPower.com, allows customers to instantly report an outage, check the status of an outage, and find helpful tips and important information about severe weather. Resources are easily located in sections dedicated to "Before," "During" and "After" a storm.

Sample information from the Storm Center includes:

  • Before a Storm: Charge your cell phone before severe weather hits. Landline phones, especially cordless models, are often affected by power outages. 
  • During a Storm: Don't take a chance by going out into bad weather. Check your mobile phone, radio or television for updates and stay inside until the threat has passed.
  • After a Storm:  Never pull tree limbs, telephone or cable lines off of power lines yourself or attempt to move a downed power line. Call (888) 891-0938 to report a downed line or contact your local authorities or dial 911.

Customers experiencing a service interruption or outage at their home or business can contact Georgia Power by calling (888) 891-0938 or by visiting GeorgiaPower.com. The company will also provide updates on major outages and repair times as possible on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/GeorgiaPower. Georgia Power is committed to customer satisfaction and unparalleled service and will coordinate power restoration 24/7 until all repairs are complete. 

Georgia Power is the largest subsidiary of Southern Company, one of the nation's largest generators of electricity. The company is an investor-owned, tax-paying utility with rates below the national average. Georgia Power serves 2.4 million customers in all but four of Georgia's 159 counties.
