Hundreds of power outages reported in Newberry County

NEWBERRY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Newberry County Sheriff's Office and Duke Energy are reporting a large number of power outages affecting the city of Newberry and the town of Prosperity.

The sheriff's office says the problem seems to stem from a power grid issue.

Deputies advise drivers in the area to remember when traffic lights are not working, the affected intersections revert to a four-way stop.

Everyone must stop and then use the intersections just like at all other four-way stops, deputies said.

Duke Energy reported over 500 customers without power due to the outage.

Service is expected to be restored by 9 a.m. according to Duke Energy's website.
