In Summerfield, video shows tree debris outside most driveways along Joseph Hoskins Road. Trees are leaning on a diagonal from the weight of the ice along Tiarella Drive.

The Citgo on South Main Street has also lost power.

NCDOT is working to cut fallen and split trees along Pleasant Ridge Road in Guilford County before they can damage power lines and block the road.

Duke Energy has projected that a million people could lose power, and some of these outages could last several days.

To prepare, Duke Energy has thousands of employees ready, including 5,400 line technicians and vegetation workers. More than 1,300 of those workers are from the company’s Midwest and Florida service areas and from other companies providing assistance.

The National Weather Service in Raleigh said that freezing rain began in central North Carolina by about 3:25 a.m. Thursday.
