A couple of small power outages have been reported in the Midlands, following an ice and snow storm that blanketed the area Tuesday night.

S.C. Electric & Gas is reporting an outage affecting a couple dozen households in Lexington County. The utility aims to restore power there by 3 p.m. Wednesday.

The coast bore the brunt of the state's power problems. Shortly after lunchtime Wednesday, more than 2,500 were without electricity in Charleston and Beaufort counties.
