Storms knock out power across country
Lightning strike damages Doby's Mill elementary
LFD Truck Fire
A member of the Lugoff Fire Department works to put out one of two side-by-side truck fires behind a hotel at I-20 and U.S. 601 late Sunday night. Luckily, temperatures had cooled a little by this time following day-time heat that soared well above 100 degrees.
Severe storms that hit the area Sunday evening left about one-third of Kershaw County residents without power Sunday and Monday morning according to Kershaw County Fire Marshal Gene Faulkenberry. Faulkenberry said power loss occurred in various parts of the county, but noted such an occurrence wasn’t unusual for a summer storm. “We had power outages spread throughout the county,” Faulkenberry said.
