MCDUFFIE COUNTY, Ga. -- More than 2,000 Jefferson Electric customers were without power Tuesday night after an unknown outage.
A Georgia Power representative says there was an equipment problem at a substation and that 800 of their customers were impacted for 40 to 45 minutes but all are back on now. The outage happened at 7:40 p.m.
The equipment that was having problems is used by both Georgia Power and Jefferson Electric, which is why both had outages.
