COLUMBIA, S.C. — Power has been restored to almost 90 percent of the South Carolina customers who were left in the dark when Hurricane Matthew hit the state last weekend.
Utility outage maps show that about 93,000 customers across the state remained without power Thursday morning. That’s down from about 850,000 customers who lost power at the height of the storm.
Since Wednesday morning, crews have been able to hook up power to about 90,000 customers.
Most of the remaining outages are in the Pee Dee where widespread flooding is hampering the efforts to get electricity flowing again.
