Thousands without power

Thousands of people across North Carolina and Virginia are without power following the ice storm that hit February 13.

It's hard to speak to a person in Caswell County today and not hear them say they have power. Thousands of people are still waiting for the lights to come back Monday thanks to an ice storm hit the region Saturday.

As of 7 a.m. Monday morning, the N.C. Department of Public Safety reports that power was down for more than 9,000 people in Guilford County, more than 8,200 people in Rockingham County, more than 2,800 in Caswell County and more than 1,500 in Forsyth County.

According to Duke Energy, power is expected to be back in Guilford, Rockingham and Caswell counties by 9 p.m. Tuesday night.
