No Power Wednesday For Harkers Island

Seeking relief from the heat will be tough Wednesday for folks on Harkers Island in Carteret County. That's because Harkers Island Electric co-op tells us they will shut the power off from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. to replace transmission lines. Because of the extreme heat, the fire department will have ice and water available and will be running on generator power and will have air conditioning for those who need a place to cool down.
