Savannah Electric Watching Hurricane Irene

As Hurricane Irene brings high winds, rain and power outages to portions of Florida, Savannah Electric continues to monitor the forecasted track of the storm.

Should severe weather impact the Savannah area, the company will be prepared to restore power quickly and safely.

Customers are reminded to avoid downed power lines that could result from severe weather. Parents are urged to specifically remind children not to touch any wire they may see, even if the wire appears to be "dead."

Due to automated detection systems, it is not necessary to report large scale service interruptions, such as from a hurricane or tropical storm. However, customers are encouraged to report isolated outages and downed wires over the Savannah Electric Outage Hotline at 1-800-390-2834.
