Line Crews Working to Restore Power Across State

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) – At the height of Tropical Storm Irma, more than 200,000 customers were without power across South Carolina.

As of Tuesday morning, more than 100,000 outages remained.

Electric company, SCE&G, has announced plans to update the public Tuesday morning about its efforts to restore power to more than 60,000 customers statewide post-Irma.

The Electric Cooperatives of S.C. said Monday that a convoy of line workers from as far away as Arkansas is headed to help get more than 50,000 customers back online.

Cooperatives provide electricity in all 46 counties, a spokesperson said, but the highest numbers of consumers without power were between the Savannah River and a line extending from Charleston to Columbia to Spartanburg.
