ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - Hundreds of people in Upstate South Carolina are still without power after a line of heavy thunderstorms moved through the area over the weekend.

Area media outlets report that about 18,000 Duke Energy customers lost power due to the storms late Saturday evening. Most of them were in Anderson County.

By early Monday, Duke Energy’s website showed about 400 customers were still without power. The company expects to have all customers back on line by Monday night.

Jeffrey Taylor of the National Weather Service says there were reports of wind damage and fallen trees and branches near Anderson and Powdersville.

A wind gust of 67 mph was reported at the Anderson airport.
