Power outage affects nearly 1,200 on Johns Island

More than 1,700 customers affected by a Johns Island power outage are back online, according to the Berkeley Electric Cooperative.

The outage began at about 11 a.m. and crews were able to restore power to 500 customers within an hour of the initial report while they worked to identify the cause of the outage.

Spokesman Micah Ponce said that once the cause was determined and cleared, the remaining customers were likely to be brought back online all at once.

No information on the cause has been released.
