One utility pole in Mitchell was reported as catching fire. As of late this morning, only one road in Lawrence County remained flooded, that being Rabbitsville Road between Meridian and Woodville Roads.

All roads in Orange County are back to normal, and Duke only had 1 customer in Lawrence County listed as out of power.
