Crews Restore Power to Thousands After Storms

Dec 26, 2012

Alabama Power officials say they've been able to restore most of the power to customers in the Mobile area in the wake of Christmas Day storms.

Authorities early Wednesday were hoping to get a clearer picture of the damage done by storms in Alabama as daylight revealed the extent of the destruction.

Alabama Power officials said Wednesday morning that its crews have restored power to most of the 25,800 customers in the Mobile area who lost power. About 5,700 were still without power as of 7 a.m. Wednesday in the Mobile area.

Statewide, about 11,100 customers remained without power at 7 a.m.
