There’s still quite a bite to the morning air, but conditions are improving. 96.3/WGOG recorded 18 degrees shortly before 6 this morning. That temperature is a dramatic change from the single-digit readings 24 hours earlier. Duke Energy’s latest report shows the number of Oconee County outages, by 5:45 this morning, had dropped to 30. Still, for many Keowee Key residents, the memory of no electric power service for several hours will likely last a long time. The development by the lake went through an ordeal beginning Monday night. Besides no heat, water line breaks caused flooding in some homes and buildings. Project manager Kevin McCracken said public safety workers yesterday made welfare checks, especially to those Keowee Key residents considered vulnerable.
