More winter precipitation in store for SC

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Forecasters say South Carolina will get more frozen precipitation before the state can look forward to thawing out and restoring power.

A winter storm warning remains in effect until midday Thursday. The National Weather Service is calling for either rain, snow, drizzle, or freezing drizzle before skies clear.

What's being called the worst winter storm to hit South Carolina in a decade covered the state in snow and sleet. At its peak, utility officials said power was cut to 245,000 customers. By Wednesday night, electric cooperatives were reporting 120,000 of its members were still without power.

Recovery from the storm was aided when President Barack Obama granted a request by Gov. Nikki Haley to declare the state a disaster area, making it eligible for federal aid.
