Life is slowly returning to normal in Hall County following last Monday’s tropical storm, with power restored to most homes and schools on track to open Monday
The Hall County School District announced Saturday it will resume normal operations Monday with all schools open. Schools in Hall, Gainesville and across the region were closed all week due to massive power outages and trees hampering traffic.
Jackson EMC said in a news release that nearly all of its members now have power and its outage map showed only one remaining as of Saturday night. Jackson reports more than 123,000 of its members lost power after the storm hit Monday. A detailed list of outages is available at www.jacksonemc.com/storm.
About 275 Georgia Power customers, mostly in Gainesville, remained without power as of 1:30 p.m. Saturday, but that had been reduced to only seven by evening, according to outage maps.
