Southern Co. (SO) Thursday said more than 200,000 customers of its Georgia Power unit are in the dark after Hurricane Michael.

The utility said it is working to repair more than 2,700 individual cases of damage, including broken poles and lines, mainly in the middle, southern and western parts of the state.

Hurricane Michael roared ashore Wednesday as one of the most powerful storms ever to hit the U.S., toppling houses, trees and power lines in its path through the Florida Panhandle. Michael weakened to a tropical storm as it moved over south-central Georgia overnight and is expected to exit back into the Atlantic Ocean late Thursday or early Friday.

Southern said Georgia Power, which serves 2.5 million customers in state, has about 3,900 workers ready to restore power as quickly and safely as possible after the storm.
