GEORGIA POWER ACTIVATES STORM CENTER, ALERTS CREWS

 ATLANTA, March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia Power Company today activated its Storm Restoration Center in Atlanta to begin planning for two separate storm systems expected to reach the state tonight.
 A system moving in from the west is expected to dump snow, rain, and possibly sleet on north Georgia beginning late this afternoon.
 Another system moving in from the Gulf of Mexico is expected to bring strong winds to the state Saturday.
 Both systems could cause power outages throughout the state, so the company has alerted evaluation and restoration crews statewide.
 In conjunction with regional offices, Georgia Power's Atlanta Storm Center coordinates restoration of electric service for Georgia Power customers throughout the state. Activities at the center include manpower and equipment coordination, damage evaluation and weather monitoring.
 In metro Atlanta, Georgia Power customers may report power outages at 404-325-4001. Elsewhere in the state they may call 800-253-1080.
