He said at its peak, roughly 8,000 people lost power though that number declined throughout the morning as line crews began their work to repair lines and restore service. As of 11 a.m., 4,427 customers remain without power.

Mooresville Fire-Rescue said it received 32 service calls since 5:15 a.m., according to its Facebook page. It said along with volunteer firefighters in the area, they went about clearing the calls and removing trees from roads.

"We all work as one team," MFS said in a comment on their post.

The worst of the storm was toward the southern part of the county, but in Statesville, two dozen residents lost power after a poll was damaged on Margaret Road and a few homes on East Side Drive lost power when a limb fell on a line, according to Public Affairs Director Nancy Davis.
