UPDATE: Roads Closed By Storms Open, Power Outages Resolved

Downed power lines closed roads in several counties in the east Tuesday night.

The largest power outage still active early Wednesday morning was reported by Progress Energy in New Bern, with about 300 customers without power. That outage is now over. At the height of the outage, 1,500 people lost power.

Highway 17 in Pollocksville in Jones County closed around 9:00 p.m. and re-opened at midnight as scheduled.

Highway 171 in Jamesville in Martin County closed because of a downed power line just after 7:00 p.m. and has since re-opened.
