A powerful thunderstorm knocked out power to most if not all of Camden on Thursday night, along with other city of Camden electric customers. Blinding lightning flashes struck around the city, causing minor damage at KershawHealth and, possibly setting fire to a barn on Firetower Farm Road. Strong winds knocked tree limbs onto power lines or knocked power lines on to roadways.
