A fast-moving squall line generated high winds and heavy rain Wednesday afternoon, knocking out power west of Milner and in the Liberty Hill area.
Southern Rivers had just under 250 members without power at 7 p.m. Most of those were along the Five Points Road between Hwy. 18 West and Hwy. 41 North. Also hard hit was the area near the Liberty Hill Community House.
At 7:05 p.m., SRE's Bobby Ferris reported the co-op lost four circuits near Milner but three had been restored. Repairs should not take long unless there are issues along service lines on private property.
