COLUMBIA, S.C., --

The power is finally back on for everyone in South Carolina after the ice storm 10 days ago.

The Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina said Saturday morning that their members had finished all their repairs on the grid, getting electricity to the final 200 customers that had been without power since the winter storm on Feb. 12 and 13.

Officials say there still may be scattered outages from the storm with people who will have to repair the wiring going into their own homes.

At the peak of the storm, almost 350,000 customers lost their power. Duke Energy restored power to all its customers last week, while South Carolina Electric & Gas finished its ice storm repairs by Wednesday.
