As of 11 a.m., Progress Energy reported about 43,300 New Hanover County customers still without power, along with 8,800 in Pender County and 7,200 in Brunswick.

Spokesman Mike Hughes said while power is being restored to some areas, others are experiencing new outages.

“Generally the numbers in the south coastal area are going down a little bit,” Hughes said.
