AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Crews from Georgia Power are responding to an outage that left nearly half of an eastern Georgia Army base without power.
Fort Gordon Spokesman Buz Yarnell tells the Augusta Chronicle (http://bit.ly/12S5m4q ) power went out at the base Friday morning and all non-essential personnel were released Friday afternoon.
Officials say the outage is linked to an equipment issue and power is expected to be restored Friday afternoon.
