CHARLESTON, SC - Berkeley Electric Cooperative crews continue to respond to the outages throughout our service area in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties.  

Currently, we have outages affecting less than 400 members, but over a widespread area.  Nearly 11,000 have already been restored as crews continued to work all through the night at many different locations.

In spite of errant reports, crews worked all through the night and will continue today until all power is restored.
