City of Marietta Update as of 6pm on Sunday, December 10, 2017 

MARIETTA - The City’s main roads and arterials are in good shape, but we urge everyone to please be cautious after nightfall as icy patches could form in the roadways. Our Streets Division is now concentrating on neighborhood streets since the City School system announced classes would be canceled tomorrow. Our Streets crews have been working 12 hour shifts and have spread 60 tons of material.

On the Marietta Power side, we were down to 500 outages last night, but overnight we had additional damage caused by fallen trees which resulted in an additional 1000 customers without power. Our crews worked through the night and have now gotten that number back down to 400. They continue to work 16 hour shifts. At the height of the storm we reached 13,000 outages which is ¼ of the entire system.

This is the worst storm damage to the power grid we have seen in 30 years. We would like to thank the cities of Covington, LaGrange and Crisp county along with Pike (private company) who have all worked to assist Marietta Power crews since yesterday. Additionally, we have about 42 residential customers who are going to need electricians because they have structural damage and we cannot restore power until the damage is fixed, this number may increase.

We would like to caution everyone that limbs and trees are still falling causing additional damage, but Marietta Power will continue to work until all power is restored.
