GARNER, N.C. (WNCN) – The owner of a Garner mini mart was worried his frozen food supply was in jeopardy Friday night after a tree fell outside the store and knocked out power.

Already out of power for more than one hour as of 9 p.m., the owner of Steve’s Mini Mart off of W. Garner Road said he was worried his frozen food supply will go bad and was worried of a possible break-in if power wasn’t restored, a CBS 17 crew reports.

A tree fell on W. Garner Road, with a police car in the area to keep drivers out.

“We were working behind the cash register. I had the customers up there and then suddenly the winds just started blowing so hard,” described Wailied Haimed, the owner of Steve’s Mini Mart in Garner.

He said within a matter of minutes he saw a tree fall on W. Garner Road and land on powerlines.

When a CBS 17 crew got there around 8 p.m. the road was closed.

“Well, we are going to be losing…a lot of gas stations around here are going to be losing a lot of food,” Haimed said.

Haimed also said he will probably have to throw away all his frozen foods.

CBS 17 was notified that more than 100,000 power outages were reported around 7:20 p.m. throughout the Triangle on Friday, with Wake County being hit the hardest.

Some of the hardest-hit locations include Fuquay-Varina, Garner, and Apex area, the weather service reported.
