22,000 without power after SC storms

Jun 3, 2011 7:18:00 AM - thestate.com
Power crews are working to restore service to more than 22,000 customers in South Carolina, mostly in the Columbia area.

Thunderstorms continued to move across South Carolina on Friday morning.

Storms that moved through the Columbia area Thursday night damaged the Governor's Mansion. A sport utility vehicle belonging to Gov. Nikki Haley's husband was crushed when a tree fell at the mansion. Haley told WLTX-TV that two exterior doors and a gate were damaged.

No one was hurt.

"We've had lots of calls," Columbia-Richland Fire Service chief Aubrey Jenkins said. "It went on all night (and) it was all over (the county)."
