TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. (AP) - Georgia's utility companies say about 115,000 customers remained without power in southeast Georgia and along the state's coast as crews continue working to restore services after Hurricane Matthew.

Georgia Power reports that about 93,000 of its customers remained without power Monday evening.

Separately, the state's electric membership cooperatives said about 22,000 of its customers were without power Monday night. They said that's down from around 100,000 Saturday morning.
