There were reports of heavy rain, hail, lightning, and wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour Wednesday night. Callers reported downed trees and power lines.

The majority of Augusta's power is expected to be restored by midnight Friday night and all other areas of the state by midnight Thursday. Georgia Power is bringing in 400 workers from Alabama, Tennessee and Florida to help with the efforts. As of 1 p.m., more than 26,000 customers were without power, including 19,600 in Augusta and 4,700 in metro Atlanta.

More weather is expected for Thursday afternoon when another frontal boundary arrives, upping the chance for showers and thunderstorms. Due to high temperatures, the atmosphere will be unstable enough to support some stronger thunderstorms, which could include damaging winds, frequent lightning and hail.
