ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Severe storms across north Georgia left at least one person dead and significant damage in their wake late Tuesday evening. 

Crews have already restored service to over 135,000 who were affected throughout the night and they're working diligently to get everyone else back online. At one point, over 176,000 customers were in the dark but that number has been whittled down significantly.
