A look at power outages in the area

COLUMBIA (WACH) -- The bulk of the winter storm is behind us, but some people are still dealing with power outages statewide.

According the SCE&G website, Aiken customers are seeing the most power outages with more than 31,000 customers out of power.

Here in the Midlands we are seeing 8,000 in Orangeburg, 900 in Lexington, and only 15 in Richland County.

Yesterday morning, power outages statewide totaled more than 346,000. Between 12:00PM and 8:00PM, SCE&G restored power to 29,000 customers.

SCE&G has an estimated time for restoration of power in each county on their website, most of which around 9, 10 or 11PM on Monday evening.

If customers in the Midlands lose power, they are encouraged to call Mid-Carolina Co-Op at (803) 749-6444 or SCE&G at 888-333-4465.
