More than 4,000 Horry Electric Cooperative members may be waking up Monday morning to blinking clocks and cooler homes after a power outage earlier in the morning.
The outage was reported just before midnight Monday, according to an online update by Horry Electric Cooperative officials.
The outage impacted more than 4,000 people living in the areas of Socastee, Pine Island, near Carolina Bays Parkway and along U.S. 501, according to an online outage map.
In a Facebook update at 2 a.m. Monday, Horry Electric Cooperative officials said crews were able to “back feed circuits 1 and 2 in the Pine Island Substation from the Jones Road Substation. The number of members impacted by the outage is now down to 2,213.”
By 4 a.m. power had been restored to all the members. It was unclear what caused the outage.
