About 200 people remain without power after thousands were affected by an outage earlier today on Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island and parts of Mount Pleasant.
SCE&G officials said equipment on a barge working in the Intracoastal Waterway made contact with a power line, causing the outage.
The utility company's outage map had reported 4,443 customer outages in the Charleston County region earlier.
Officials with SCE&G said power has been restored to everyone except for 186 customers.
