DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — Hundreds were left without power in northern Davidson County Tuesday.

Tuesday was the second day of widespread outages impacting homes and businesses. The power has been out across Lexington, Welcome, parts of Midway and up and down US 52.

Duke Energy’s online outage map showed just under 600 customers were impacted by this outage on Tuesday morning. Officials say that they switched the power to a new source in order to fix the issue, and then will switch back once the issue is resolved. This may cause issues as they transition sources.

A representative for Duke Energy said that the outage was caused by equipment failure at a substation. Crews worked through the night, bringing the outages down from 2600 to under 600 as of Tuesday morning.

The power returned around 2 p.m. Tuesday.

More than 3000 people in Thomasville, on the other side of Davidson County, dealt with a similar outage over the weekend.
