If you lost power Wednesday afternoon you weren't alone.
About 1,100 South Carolina Electric and Gas customers in northern Beaufort County lost power for about 8 minutes Wednesday, according to an SCE&G spokesman.
Robert Yannity of SCE&G said crews aren't sure why the power went out.
"Basically a circuit blew," he said. "Could have been a squirrel in the wrong place at the wrong time."
To our knowledge the outage effected all of downtown and portions of Lady's Island.
