Power Restored In Lincolnton

Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON, N.C. - As of 1:49 p.m., the power has been restored in Lincolnton according to news alerts from the City of Lincolnton and Lincoln County. All County offices will operate on a regular schedule tomorrow. City Public Works thanked everyone for their patience.

Power was out early Monday in about half the city of Lincolnton. A tree was downed by the wind near the Marcia Cloninger Rail Trail and a transformer blew causing two of the four main circuits in the city to be affected. The storm, about 8 p.m. Sunday, left many in the dark overnight, and crews had to turn off the rest of the two circuits Monday morning to do repairs.

Lincolnton City Hall remained open as they had a back-up generator.

The power outage caused four schools to be closed: Lincolnton High, Battleground Primary, S. Ray Lowder Primary, and Kiser Intermediate. Rescheduled was the Community Forum with Dr. Lory Morrow at Lincolnton High School from tonight until next Monday, November 6.

Numerous county offices were closed for the day including all the Courthouse offices, the Tax Office, the Register of Deeds Office and the Planning Department.

Also closed was the James W. Warren Citizens Center, Gaston College Lincoln Campus, and the Lincoln County Senior Center. The Lincoln County Public Library was already closed for the day for staff development.

The Lincolnton Rotary Club called off its regular Monday meeting at 1st Baptist Church due to the outage.

No other closings or postponements have been reported to the Lincoln Herald at this time.
