Power outages throughout Lowcountry due to high winds

Local News

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Power outages have been reported across the Lowcountry on Monday.

More than 1,000 outages were reported by Dominion Energy customers early Monday morning. Berkeley Electric customers are also reporting a loss in power.

According to Dominion Energy, high winds are causing the outages due to power lines being knocked down as storms move through.

Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Josh Marthers said the possibility of downed trees and powerlines will continue throughout the day due to a weather system passing through the region Monday morning.

Officials say as they work to restore power, people are urged to stay away from downed power lines and report any outages.
