More than 1,100 Duke Energy customers in Laurens County lost power Thursday morning.

The outages were first reported just after 7 a.m.

A Duke Energy spokesman said wires and poles were damaged when someone (not affiliated with Duke) was doing tree work in the area.

Crews are working to repair the damaged equipment and hope to have service restored by 9:30 a.m.
