The Aftermath of Hurricane Zeta on Georgia

Hurricane Zeta hit Georgia later last night into earlier this morning. Gwinnett County Public School has issued a digital learning day for all students for the following the next school days. Starting with Thursday morning, Oct. 29. However, Friday, Oct. 30 will have a complete turn around with a dry halloween weekend.

“The storm downed trees and power lines across northern Georgia. More than 1 million homes and businesses had their power knocked out,” The Weather Channel said, less than three hours ago.

This is just some of the latest damages to Gwinnett’s community.

Gwinnett Daily Post said, “Gwinnett County police tweeted at 8:30 a.m.: “We have reports of trees down and wires down all over Gwinnett. We are working with DOT crews to clear tree debris but if a power line is impacted we have to close the roadway and wait for a power company crew. Please look for alternate routes and expect delays.”

Many trees and wires have led to serious and minor injuries to gwinnett citizens and to various property damages to gwinnett community.

The Weather Channel states, “First responders had to rescue an Atlanta man pinned to his bed when a large tree fell into his bedroom. The man had minor injuries and was taken to a hospital, according to a fire department spokesman.”

11Alive.com said, “According to the power company, at its peak, more than 610,000 customers were without power. As of 1:15 p.m., that number was down to about 447,000. Combined with EMC outages, nearly 1,000,000 customers in Georgia alone had no electricity as Zeta moved through.”

Power is going out left and right in Metro Georgia. 11Alive.com adds, “Following phase one of the assessment, Georgia Power crews will begin the restoration process, then send out repair crews.”
