CURRITUCK COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — Currituck County Middle School will not have classes Thursday due to a power outage.
Per a Facebook post on Currituck School’s Facebook page, crews likely won’t have the power restored until noon.
The outage was caused by an overnight crash. An SUV hit a power pole, knocking out power to hundreds of customers, including the middle school, according to Dominion Energy.
There is no word if there were any injuries reported in the crash.
Any student who was already picked up by the bus before the closure was announced was brought to the middle school, and arrangements were made to return students home or have them picked up.
