The city of Hampton restored power to all its customers June 26 following storms June 23 and 24, City Manager Charles L. Coney said.

“Weekend storms left damage and caused thousands to lose power,” he said in a statement.

Early on June 24, a fallen tree brought down three city power lines and three belonging to Georgia Power.

“Unfortunately, until the Georgia Power lines were restored, the city’s technicians could not address the city’s power lines,” Coney said. “Power was restored mid-afternoon on Sunday.”

Another fallen tree June 26 took working with Central Georgia EMC to correct, he said.

About 1,000 customers were affected.

Hampton citizens and customers can report a downed line or power interruption by calling 911.
