Power outage in Decatur shuts down Maloof administration buildingDeKalb County Georgia. Source: Google Maps.
DeKalb County’s Maloof administration is closed for the rest of the day (Friday, Sept. 14) due to a power outage.
It’s not clear what caused the outage. An outage map on the Georgia Power website shows 57 customers have been affected and estimated power would be restored before 4 p.m.
A reader sent an email saying the power was also out at Scott Boulevard and Coventry and was restored at 3 p.m. but then went out again. The reader says its causing traffic to back up. It’s unclear whether the two outages are linked.
