        I live on Olmstead Rd in Burlington. Was told directly by Duke Power Workers on my street that we would get power by late Wednesday night.

      • judith m. hampton

        is power on on W. Friendly Ave at Quaker Commons condo complex beside funeral home & across from apartments

      • David

        We have been without power since early Friday morning here in High Point in the Oakview area. I have been out in the neighborhood all day. We haven’t seen anyone from High Point Electric or Pike. There are numerous houses and two condo complexes as well as the large Chatham Woods apartment complex that is without power.

      • L

        This raises major issues that policymakers and voters need to consider. The cost of putting power lines underground and the lack of maintenance of the power lines that allowed so many of them to fail. Also state websites have no information for residents to get reliable information on such a major storm event. I think that should change by county and at the state level.

        • Ford

          L, when the area was hit back in 2004 with the bad ice storm. Duke Energy after the same out cry did a study about putting lines underground. In a nutshell it found it would cost billions of dollars and take over twenty years to complete. With that your bill would nearly double to cover cost. That in 2004 numbers, just imagine the cost today. It’s just not economically viable to do these days. Could Duke be more aggressive in their tree trimming though out the service area. Yes, however to effectively do this in some areas they would have to make ugly v cuts and other cuts that people complain about. Does it prevent more outages in this type event or even in a summer thunderstorm, Yes. Again it comes with a cost, be monitory or public relation crisis. Bottom line it’s cheaper to deal with a major storm every ten years then to bury everything in site.

      • Carolann

        We had a tree come through our house my daughter’s room when she was sleeping. It missed her by about 2 feet. The tree went length of our house. We are thankful she wasn’t hurt.

      • L

        Ford, Thanks for adding that very important statement. Maybe if Counties and the States approved a Bond and a portion of shareholder dividens (with an actuarial analysis) that improved maintenance would increase returns in the future could be seen as creative. Ok maybe you begin in stages attcking worst areas first or maybe as you said instead of placing cables underground for now they simply upgrade the lines? Hearing from the Linesman a major factor is the lines are way too old. When factoring in the health risks to vunerable populations vs. the lack of convenience of everybody else, the cost of the loss of business not just on retailers but all who work from home or at the least need to be connected….How then do we weigh the costs? shouldn’t we atleast explore this again? Maybe a third party should be responsible for the analysis and not Duke? Maybe there are possibilities of getting our Senators to bring home some federal assistance also. Talk in Washington is that our entire infrastructure is in peril. Just a thought….

      • Tom Smith

        here in alamance,w had 59,000 outages,in guilford, they had 150,000 outages,,, now Guilford is down to 67,000, and alamance down to 45,000,,guilford has had more restored,,close to 80,000,,,alamance only 15,000 ,whats up? guilford more important than alamance???

      • David

        Chatham Wood Apartments are still without power. We are on Lakecrest between Hartley and Oakview. How much longer Mr. City Manager?? it is forty degrees in most of our apartments, are we not important because we rent. All areas around us have power.

      • Gary S

        For starters I’ve been following this blog and all I can say is great job!
        Now, I live on WESTMILL Dr in Lexington, it’s a private road off Rowe Rd. Everyone surrounding us has power. There are 6 houses on our street and it seems that we’ve been forgotten. Lex Utilities stated they exp a 50% outage. Their website stated they were putting a few thousand back on line every few hours. HEY!!!! Been at 90-95% for the last 24 hours. See where I’m at folks. I know we’re not the only ones , just want this out there

      • Jennifer

        Thanks so much for this blog. My power returned today, but this blog helped tremendously in keeping me informed and little less in the dark.
