Storms in and around Rock Hill on Thursday afternoon caused power outages and felled trees, though injuries weren’t reported.

A little after 2:30 p.m., the city reported crews were out working to restore power knocked out by storms passing through the area.

A little before 4 p.m., there were about 1,500 customers without power.

A large tree down by a Milton Avenue home covered the road there. Fire crews responded to several calls throughout the city.

At 7:30 p.m., Rock Hill reported more than 100 outages on its electric system. At least some of them were the result of downed trees. Duke Energy reported more than 260 more outages on the Lancaster County side of the Catawba River, near Landsford Canal State Park. More than 1,000 Duke outages were reported in the Charlotte area. York Electric Cooperative reported just nine outages, in Fort Mill.
