The SCE&G outage map showed dozens of reports.

A piece of equipment on a barge working in the Intra coastal Waterway made contact with a power line near the Isle of Palms Connector. That caused the outage to Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island and parts of Mount Pleasant.  Power has now been restored or should be soon to all customers.


SCE&G's website estimates it will be at least early this afternoon to restore power to those customers affected. 

As of the 11:00AM hour, there were more than 4,400 customers without power.  Stay tuned for the latest updates here and on air.
