Winter Storm Knocks Out Power For Tens of Thousands Across The Carolinas


Yesterday’s Winter Storm Izzy not only brought freezing temperatures and iced over roads, the storm’s freezing rain and damaging winds also took down hundreds of trees and power lines across the Carolinas.

As of 9:20 this morning, there are still over 40,000 residents without power around our region, with most of them being located in northern South carolina.

Duke Energy reminded Carolina residents today to steer clear of any down power lines they might see – this includes trying to remove them from roads they are traveling down.
