Power out for hundreds in Washington, Beaufort Counties

Posted: Updated:
PLYMOUTH, N.C. - Crews are working to restore power to about 900 customers in Washington and Beaufort Counties.

Tideland EMC tells 9 On Your Side its Plymouth substation lost power around 3:30 Friday afternoon. Repair crews determined that the cause of the outage was a damaged transformer inside the substation.

Tideland says it will take crews approximately seven hours to install a spare transformer. They expect power will be restored by midnight.

As crews work on the substation, customers are asked to cut off all household breakers that control large loads such as water heaters and central heating systems. Once power has been restored, Tideland says people should wait about 15 to 30 minutes before cutting those breakers back on.

An outage map for the area is available at this link.
