RALEIGH, N.C. -
Snow fell again Thursday afternoon but it wasn't enough to stop the Triangle to begin to dig out of the worst winter storm in years.
As of 10:15 p.m., Duke Energy Progress' power outage map is showing 167 customers affected in Wake County, followed by Harnett County (189), Moore County (1,165), Chatham County (18), Granville County (9), Johnston County (3) and Franklin County (20).
Many of the hundreds of cars that were left stranded overnight in Raleigh have been moved if they were in the way of traffic, but the cars should be in the same general vicinity of where they were located.
Gov. Pat McCrory said cars were being towed that were blocking roads.
Hundreds of people in the Triangle abandoned their cars Wednesday after an afternoon storm pelted North Carolina with snow and ice. Raleigh's Glenwood Avenue, where a steep hill rises to the west.
Mark Davis of Barbour's Towing and Truck Repair in Raleigh said his company towed plenty of cars throughout the evening.
"Around 200 – at least," Davis said.
Davis said people who abandoned their cars should contact their local law enforcement agency or the Highway Patrol.
However, officer C.D. Smith with the Raleigh Police said the cars were too numerous for the police to track.
"No way to do that," he said. "There are too many."
Smith said the cars were towed to an area close by if they were blocking potential traffic.
"It should be in the same general vicinity," he said.
People with questions can call the Raleigh Police at (919) 996-3335.
The city also said that if citizens can't find their car, the car may have been moved by the North Carolina Department of Transportation. Citizens can call DOT at (919) 733-3861.
The city urged people not to call 911 for issues that are not emergencies.
Barbour's Davis said the towing company would be paid by the city, but he was uncertain if the city would pass the charges on to people who left their cars.
McCrory, in a news conference Thursday morning, said people in cities should call their local police departments for information on abandoned cars. People outside cities should call the State Highway Patrol at 919-733-3861.
The snow was tough on Durham County, with the Sheriff's Department reporting 124 abandoned vehicles. There were also 52 crashes between noon Wednesday and 7:30 a.m. Thursday. Thankfully, there were no serious injuries or deaths.
