ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Power company crews worked around the clock this week in an attempt to restore electricity to Georgia homes and buildings that remained in the dark after the remnants of Hurricane Irma passed through the state.

As of 6 a.m. Saturday morning, Georgia Power reported 12,000 of its customers were still affected. Georgia EMCs reported less than 15,000 of their customers were without power. That's down from a combined 2 million outages at the height of the storm.
