1,600+ without power in Beaufort (update: It's back on)

9: 30 a.m.: And just like that the power is back on.

Not sure what  happened, we'll let you know if we hear anything.

9 a.m.: According to the South Carolina Electric & Gas website more than 1,600 customers are without juice this morning.

No clue on why that's occurred, but we'll put a call in to find out.

We'll keep you updated on when it comes back on, though you'll surely be able to tell us first.
