Clemson, SC (FOX Carolina) - Some residents in Pickens County could be waking up late this morning after a downed tree took out some powerlines close to U.S. 76. 

Pickens Co. lines down

Our FOX Carolina news team came across crews working to repair the lines around 5:30 a.m. Friday morning. We're told it was happening on College Heights Boulevard near U.S. 76.  

Duke Energy was reporting over 1,100 people were without power due to the outage and estimated it would be repaired by 9 a.m.
