MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - On Wednesday night, Alabama Power said there are fewer than 500 outages statewide one week after Hurricane Zeta hit the state.

Approximately 180 customers without power are in central Alabama

That’s down from a peak of 504,000 outages following the storm.

The company says over 1,200 line workers and support personnel are completing Alabama Power restoration’s efforts Wednesday night in central Alabama. Over 6,000 line workers from 24 states and Canada are helping restoration statewide.

“Hurricane Zeta produced impacts similar to those of Hurricane Katrina and the April 27th tornadoes, In only a four county area of west central Alabama, there were over 300 broken poles and over 1000 fallen spans of wire,” Alabama Power said in a statement.
