More than 2,600 Folly Beach residents did not have electricty shortly after 5:30 p.m. Monday.

That was more than twice the number of outages S.C. Electric & Gas reported a few minutes earlier.

The largest cluster of homes without power was around Little Oak Island, although smaller outages were reported across the island.

S.C. Electric & Gas crews hoped to have power restored by about 7:30 p.m.
