As of 8 a.m. Thursday Shelby Energy was reporting that 340 customers in Shelby County remain without power.
Late Wednesday night, an emergency shelter has been set up at Simpsonville Fire Station No. 2 on Anderson Lane to accommodate these residents.
Owen Electric Cooperative sent in four crews to help Shelby Energy's workers. The cooperative has 820 total outages among the counties serves.
Power outages were going in an out because ice-laden branches continued to crack and fall onto power lines.
