ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Power reports that fewer than 300 of its customers remain without power after severe storms crossed the state.

The utility company said more than 12,200 customers had lost service when the storms struck Sunday afternoon and evening.

By early Monday morning, most of the remaining outages were in the Lumpkin area south of Columbus and in the Augusta area.

Crews were also cleaning up damage Monday morning in several counties.

In Upson County, emergency management officials reported that several homes in the Thomasville area were badly damaged.

In Lamar County, WSB-TV reports that heavy winds brought down the roof of a public works building.

Emergency officials also reported to the National Weather Service that trees and power line were down in Bibb, Bleckley, Monroe, Pulaski, Telfair and Wilkinson counties.
