Severe thunderstorms deluged southern Bibb County with nearly 5 inches of rain after 10 p.m. Tuesday and caused hundreds of power outages.
Georgia Power spokesman Jeff Wilson said about 5 customers remained without electricity around Bibb County as of 11:20 a.m. The bulk of the lingering outages has been restored near Atwood Drive between Log Cabin Drive and Bloomfield Road near Eisenhower Parkway. Service is expected to be restored by noon.
Up to 2,000 Georgia Power customers lost electricity in Bibb, Houston and Twiggs counties during the height of Tuesday night's storms, said utility company spokeswoman Lisa Frederick.
"It was bad all over the state," Frederick said. "The outages are scattered all over."

Meteorologist Laura Belanger said the heaviest rain was concentrated south of Macon.
"The way the storm moved it did hit the same area in southern Bibb County," Belanger said. "We have another gauge near Byron that showed about the same so we consider it an accurate reading."
East Macon picked up about 2 inches of rain during the same time period.
Numerous trees toppled in the storm with more than a dozen down near Lizella, but the Bibb County Sheriff's Office reports they have all been removed from the roads. Several trees fell around Macon, but 911 dispatchers did not report any problems by rush hour Wednesday morning.
