A spokesman for the utility said power was knocked out along East Beach Road, Piedmont Road, state Highway 112 and in the Crescent Beach area.

The outage affected more than 400 homes from Salt Creek west to the Lyre River.

“The power is out to the entire Joyce area,”‘ he said.

Power outage reports started coming in at about 10:30 p.m. and utility crews were scrambling to find a cause.

A tree was believed to have fallen on power lines along Piedmont Road between state Highway 112 and East Beach Road, which connects to U.S. Highway 101 on the east end of Lake Crescent.
