Update on Power Failures, 3:30pm EST

Power companies reporting 380,000+ without power across Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina (3:30 pm ET). Using the utilities' rule of thumb that 1 customer (which is what they report) = 3.5 people, then approximately 1,330,000 people are without power at this time. 

Update via Twitter, this photo from Augusta, GA showing trees bringing lines down. 
I just got off a conference call with people based in Atlanta, and two of three (they were working from home) had been without power since this morning.
