If you're still without electricity and you're tempted to call your local city, think again.
They're may not be able to do anything, at least not right now.
Following the storms that tore across metro Atlanta, neighborhoods are finding trees down and power out.
And while local public works crews would love to clear the downed trees, they can't until Georgia Power makes sure the downed lines aren't live.
"If a power line is energized and we were to hit that with a chainsaw or a piece of equipment, well, we don't want our guys getting hurt," say Charlie Roberts with Sandy Springs public works.
He tells WSB, his crews would be able to clear out the fallen trees, but not without first knowing that the power had been cut.
"Georgia Power is doing their best to get through it, and we're following bend them," says Roberts. "But, right now, it's going very slowly."
He says he knows of at least 40 live lines that are down in just his city alone. And, he says, despite all the warnings that come before, during, and after a storm, drivers still tempt fate by flirting with the downed lines.
"Even though the line is dead and you may be able to safely drive over it," he says, "if Georgia Power flips a switch somewhere down the line, that line could become energized and you try to drive back over it and, well, that's all she wrote."
Roberts advice, which is quite simple, is to do what his crews do and treat every downed line as if it's live.
