Buford High School, Buford Middle School, and one elementary school in Lancaster County are closed today due to a widespread power outage. Both school and Duke Energy officials said it would be hours before the power was restored so the school district canceled classes in those three schools for today.

Two large circuits off S.C. 9 and near Buford are out according to Lancaster County Emergency Management Director Darren Player. Duke has estimated it to be 3 p.m. before power is restored.
