Duke Energy says 10,000 people are working to restore power to about 175,000 customers across the Carolinas in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Michael.

The company said in a news release Saturday that power had been restored to more than 900,000 customers in the two states over the 48 hours since the storm passed through.

Duke says Guilford, Rockingham, Alamance and Caswell counties in North Carolina were among the hardest hit.

Crews from other states are assisting Carolinas-based line workers.
