Afternoon Storm Knocks Out Power in Chatham County

Earlier this afternoon, a short but strong thunderstorm passed over the area cooling things down about 20 degrees and knocking out power around Chatham County.

Savannah Electric says upwards of 9,000 homes lost power. Road crews put out stop signs at some of Savannah's busiest intersections, like MLK and Gwinnett Street.

Workers in downtown businesses waited outside for the lights to come back on.

Crews are still trying to get things back up and running and are not sure how long before they have power back on to everyone.
