Afternoon storms knock out power for 5,600 By Savannah Morning News
Storms that popped up in Chatham County this afternoon have left 5,600 people without power.
According to the Chatham County Emergency Agency, strong winds knocking out two power poles on U.S. 80 are the culprits.
Mark Williams, Georgia Power spokesman, said the electricity outages are impacting Tybee and Wilmington islands.
About 1,300 customers on Wilmington Island should have power back soon, Williams said.
He said it could be "a few hours" before power is restored on Tybee, adding that workers are having to make "extensive" repairs.
