Snake knocks out Myrtle Beach power

  • Follow Bizarre

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — People in Horry County who might have been late for work can blame the snake.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports a snake got into an Horry County Electric Cooperative substation early Tuesday and came in contact with an electronics circuit. Power was cut to almost 2,000 customers.

Officials say the power went out about 1:15 a.m. and was restored about an hour later.
