ATLANTA (AP) - Utility companies say more than 6,000 customers are without power in north Georgia after several inches of snow fell in the region.
Before dawn Thursday, Georgia's electric membership cooperatives about 3,000 customers were power in north Georgia. Authorities say the outages are primarily in Gilmer, White, Gordon and Catoosa Counties.
Georgia Power's outage data early Thursday showed that more than 3,000 of its customers were without power. Many of those outages were in the northeast corner of Georgia.
The storm moved into the region Wednesday afternoon, dropping nearly nine inches of snow in parts of northwest Georgia. Many areas of north Georgia saw at least six inches of snow.
