A workforce of more than 5,000 line crews and support personnel from Alabama Power and 24 states and Canada has restored service to more than 90% of customers affected by Hurricane Zeta. As of 2 p.m. Monday, 46,000 outages remain statewide, down from a peak of 504,000.
The company expects 95% of affected customers to have service by Tuesday. Restoration for the hardest hit areas of Calhoun, Chilton, Clarke, Clay, Dallas, Randolph and Talladega counties will extend later into the week.
