COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW) -- Power is out again in one section of Columbia County thanks to clean up from this month's ice storm.
Columbia County EMA Director Pam Tucker says a dump truck tore down a power line at Marshall Square. Tucker says that area has been set up as a staging area for crews clearing trees, branches and limbs that fell under the weight of ice.
The dump truck was unloading gravel in an area where rain had caused muddy ground.
Georgia Power is on the scene working to repair the pole and get the lights back on. Power should be restored by noon Thursday.
