North Carolina still facing icy conditions

Posted: Updated:

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina still faces icy conditions, with dangerous roads in much of the state.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for most of the state. The weather service says ice and snow-covered roads will be a problem at least through noon Thursday.

Duke Energy reported nearly 3,000 customers without service early Thursday in the western part of the state. The biggest problem is in Stanly County, where nearly 1,000 customers are without service.

The company says about 1,500 customers are without service in the eastern part of the state previously served by Progress Energy.

Dominion Electric reports only about 100 customers without service in northeastern North Carolina.

Temperatures early Thursday ranged from minus-4 degrees in Asheville and Reidsville to 32 degrees at Kill Devil Hills.
