Over 1,000 customers in Gaston and Lincoln counties remain without power as Duke Energy addresses equipment issues. The outages, initially affecting around 3,500 people in the Mount Holly area and 1,200 near Highways 16 and 73, have been partially resolved, but some traffic lights in downtown Mount Holly are still out.

Duke Energy is installing new poles and switching customers to alternative feeds, with full restoration expected by 6 p.m. Residents are advised to check real-time outage maps for updates and exercise caution at non-functioning traffic lights.
