More than 35,000 Duke Energy customers without power across NC

Duke Energy said it has 4,200 people working to restore power to thousands of Piedmont families.

Duke Energy currently lists 35,342 customers in North Carolina without power. This includes about 12,000 in Guilford County, 14,000 in Alamance County, 4,000 in Randolph County and 3,000 in Davidson County.

The number of outages is coming down, but some people are still wondering why their neighbor may have power, but they don’t.

FOX8 spoke to Lisa Parrish with Duke Energy via telephone on Sunday to get answers on how Duke prioritizes its repairs.

Garey Edwards, Utilities Director for the City of High Point, says there are still 1,200 outages among City of High Point customers. Most of the outages are on the west side of High Point. Edwards said it may be Tuesday before power is fully restored.
