Columbia, SC (WOLO) — We were fortunate here in the Midlands to only have minimal damage and street flooding, but the biggest issue for people here at home were the power outages.
At last check there were just over three thousand customers in the State without electricity.
That number has dropped significantly from yesterday when at one point more than 167 thousand customers were in the dark. As you can see from the tweet posted on their Twitter page this evening crews have almost restored the power to most of the 72 thousand customers who lost power at the height of the storm.
We’ve now restored service to 99%+ of the nearly 72,000 customers who lost power at the peak of #Michael. Damaged service drops in residential neighborhoods often present the final hurdle to achieving total restoration. Learn more: https://t.co/c7ACgiSqaA #scwx #sctweets pic.twitter.com/Pg92evVCLR
