RALEIGH, NC (AP) — More than half a million utility customers
in North Carolina have no power as Hurricane Irene grinds up the
coast.

Progress Energy reported Saturday there is no power getting to
about 270,000 customers. The North Carolina Electric Cooperatives
say 150,000 of their customers are affected.

Virginia-based Dominion Power reported more than 65,000
customers in North Carolina are down. And an umbrella group largely
comprised of North Carolina towns and cities that provide their own
service say 97,000 have no power.
