Power has been restored to all of downtown Macon, where a transmission line problem cut power to thousands of customers.

Georgia Power's outage map listed about 6,600 customers without power at 10:28 a.m., with power outages stretching along both sides of the Ocmulgee River, from Interstate 75 to Central City Park.

At least one person was reported trapped in an elevator, others in parking garages unable to leave, and more people caught in traffic as traffic signals lost power.
