RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Tens of thousands of people lost power across the Triangle and parts of central North Carolina on Monday evening and into Tuesday morning.

According to the Duke Energy outage map, over 10,000 customers were without power in the Raleigh area, while over 1,000 customers were out of power in Johnston County as of 10:16 a.m. Tuesday morning.

By Tuesday afternoon, Duke Energy announced that power had been restored to more than 365,000 customers in the Carolinas with fewer than 50,000 outages left as of 1:30 p.m.

The company said restoration efforts would continue throughout Tuesday and the majority of customers were expected to have power again by Tuesday night. However, Duke said restoration in the hardest hit areas would continue into Wednesday.

In areas of Raleigh and Wake Forest — along with many others — downed trees fell on powerlines Monday night, also dragging the wires down, leading to various power outages in the region.

Duke Energy grid specialist Jeff Brooks posted on social media at 8:08 p.m. Monday night that “nearly 250K” of the utility’s customers across the Carolinas were without power.

“More than 4K outage locations will need to be repaired to restore all customers,” he wrote in the post. “Crews will restore power once safe to do so.”
