MCINTOSH CO., GA (WTOC) - A snake is being blamed for knocking out power Monday morning to more than 3,000 customers in McIntosh County.
Officials with Coastal Electric Cooperative say a snake crawled onto a 25,000 volt circuit breaker inside the Sapelo substation at Eulonia, Ga.
Crews scrambled to restore power to the 3,297 customers affected. The entire circuit breaker had to be replaced. Power has since been restored to the affected customers.
