ATLANTA (AP) - Hundreds of Georgia Power customers remain without service in the metro Atlanta region.

Georgia Power’s outage map showed that about 900 customers in the region did not have power on Friday morning. A thunderstorm packing high winds and heavy rain passed through the area on Thursday evening, and more than 21,000 customers were reported without power at one point.

National Weather Service meteorologists say more storms that could be strong or severe are possible in much of Georgia late Friday afternoon and evening. Forecasters say western Georgia is most vulnerable to those storms.

Thursday’s storm also caused several house fires in Gwinnett County and knocked down trees and damaged power lines. Capt. Tommy Rutledge says no major damage or injuries were reported.
