Power outage left much of Brunswick Co. in cold

On this cold Thursday morning, much of Brunswick County was without power. A Brunswick Electric Membership Cooperative spokesperson told WWAY power was out from Supply southward to the state line. Power was restored around 9:00 this morning, and the spokesperson said it's believed the problem started at the Prospect Transmission Substation near Supply.

2 PM

No power here in one part of Shallotte until after 2:00 PM. I guess they were bringing neighborhoods on one at a time to minimize the surge. I guess they got to us LAST. ...or either forgot us. Anyway, it sure as heck wasn't 9:00 this morning.

power outage

Our power (Shallotte) surely wasn't restored by 9AM! Power went out about 6:02, came back on around 8:09, (I was in the process of resetting the clock so I'm pretty sure of the time.) lasting only about 5 minutes, with several off/on/off/on/off blips. It did the same thing around 9:35, going back off after several "blips" staying on only 5 minutes or so. Power was back on around 10:45 and stayed on. We were without power for nearly 5 hours. For us - it meant not only no heat, but no water as the pump is required as we are not on municipal water yet.

power outage

went off at 6:30am and came back on at 7:40am in Longwood area.
