Area's affected include Highway 58 South , Highway 17 South, Island Creek Road, White Oak River Road, Hunters Creek Road, Rock Creek Road, Mill Creek Road, Goshen road , and the Pollocksville area.

Officials first said there was a potential water main break. On Monday morning, officials said it was in fact an electrical component that malfunctioned, but that was repaired by 3PM on Sunday.
