Why is it that this paper,and none of the local TV stations never give out any information to Burke co residents about weather or anything else unless they think it will benefit them.

Kudos to SCE&G

Earlier today, out of over 52,000 plus customers, 19,000+ were without power in Aiken Co. Now it is down to 12,000+.
