Bulloch Inconvenienced by Power Outages

Wide spread power outages have been a challenge for power crews throughout Bulloch County today.  They started the day with over 9,000 outages and at 8:30 PM have just over 1,500 customer remaining without power.  Many of these have been without power for nearly 24 hours.  Some could be without power until Saturday.

Bulloch VOAD Offers Help

Bulloch VOAD has offered to assist citizens who have had prolonged power outages with any needs that they may have.  Reach them on Facebook @bullochvoad   They have emergency food supplies and volunteers ready to help elderly or financially restrained individuals who need assistance cleaning up debris.

At this point, request for assistance is very low.  Cooler temperatures tonight with a low at 55 degrees and a high tomorrow of 78 is a blessing for citizens without power.
