Crews working round the clock
Laurens Electric started receiving outage reports overnight after a combination of sleet and ice arrived in the northern part of its service area. In the more southern locations, wind and saturated ground are causing trees to fall. Approximately 3500 members are without power as of 9 a.m. Sunday.
The following is a breakdown of the number of LEC outages by county:
§ Greenville - 3080
§ Laurens – 321
§ Anderson – 35

Crews have been working non-stop and will continue to work until all power is restored.
