Thousands Still Without Power In The Carolinas After Florence and Michael


As of Monday morning at 9am, over 34,000 Carolina residents are still without power, 1 month after Hurricane Florence and 4 days after Tropical Storm Michael dumped historic levels of floodwaters and toppled thousands of trees throughout our region.

That number is down from the over 500,000 Carolinians who had no power last Thursday, the day Michael swept through our states.

According to Duke Energy, most of the remaining 34,000 power outages should be repaired by the end of this week.

The company is still working around the clock to rebuild lines and bring back power to all affected customers.
