Power is slowly being restored to homes and business across the state after last week’s ice storm.

As of Wednesday morning, Duke Energy reported fewer than 500 customers without power in Guilford County and around 300 outages in Alamance County.

Randolph County is down to less than 100.

Some people in High Point neighborhoods are upset because one side of the street may have power, but the other doesn’t. Crews say they are working as fast as they can.

Despite afternoon storms, Duke Energy expects to restore power to all customers by Wednesday night.

Crews are also out Wednesday to trim trees back from the power lines and roadways. They will stop working  this afternoon while an impending storm is set to roll through.

There have been reports of a tree hanging over northbound Business 85 and motorists are afraid it will fall into the road, or onto a vehicle, when strong winds hit today.
