SALISBURY — Duke Energy said they’re working to restore power to nearly 1,100 accounts that were knocked out this morning due to storm-related damage.
Spokesman Pete Brooks said crews hope to have power back up around noon.
Salisbury is the largest outage currently in North Carolina, according to Duke Energy’s outage map. The affected accounts — which have been reported in the South Fulton Street area — include residences and businesses.
Brooks said the cause was not immediately available.
“It looks like we’re going to have that back on around noon today,” Brooks said.
Some businesses have been affected by the outage.
Mambo Grill on South Fulton Street said on Facebook they would be closed until 5 p.m.
“There has been a power outage on our street and we are waiting for the issue to get resolved,” the restaurant said in a Facebook post.
