The outage numbers for Energy United customers in the Triad are as follows as of 1:45 p.m. Monday:

  • Forsyth County – 39
  • Rockingham County – 42
  • Stokes County – 8
  • Davidson County – 32

About 800 people were called on Saturday to help restore power in the area, in addition to about 1,200 people already working in the area.

Crews said in some cases, they were forced to work around trees that hadn't been removed yet.

Utility crews closed both Camden Road and Ashland Drive in Greensboro Monday while they worked. Residents said they understood the outages, but were hopeful power would be restored soon.

"We made the comment that if it was just the two of us this would probably be a fun thing to endure but it’s been tricky with a baby. So we’re happy to see some progress,” Andrew Clark said.

Others said they were sharing resources with neighbors, like generators and hot water.

“I think some thing like this can really help a neighborhood come together because everybody is kind of struggling with the same thing,” Kate Guthrie said.
