Thousands still without power after Easter Sunday storms, tornadoes

Posted April 13, 2020 4:22 p.m. EDT

At around 4 p.m., around 7,000 are residents remained without power, according to the Duke outage website, while over 131,000 across NC and SC were without power.

As if quarantine concerns weren't enough, Easter Sunday 2020 brought hail, severe storms and even tornadoes in Alamance County.

We're waiting for word from the National Weather Service as to whether damage in Orange County was caused by another tornado.

The result from rain and winds is the usual one: downed limbs and trees taking out power for thousands in the WRAL viewing area.

A quick check of the Duke Energy Carolinas page shows the largest outage in the Edgewater area of east Raleigh, with over 700 residents without power. Duke's estimated time of restoration for this areas is 5:15 p.m.
