Duke Energy and contractors are working to restore power in two separate areas of Rutherford County.

Over 750 customers are without power in southwest Forest City affecting Piney Ridge Road, Bethany Church Road, South Church Street and U.S. 74A. A wire snapped and broke one of the crossarms at the transmission poles.

The other outage is in the Bostic, Corinth area affecting 651 customers, due to a storm in the area causing the lines to be overloaded, said a Duke Energy spokesperson.
