An estimated 15,000 South Carolinians still had no electricity, three days after a thunderstorm ripped through the state's mid-section, officials said. In Washington, D.C., where 72,000 customers lost power after a string of storms last week, about 3,100 residents and businesses, mostly in northwest Washington and the affluent suburbs of Bethesda and Chevy Chase, Md., remained in the dark. At least 100,000 customers in the greater Columbia, S.C., area lost power when a storm packing 78-m.p.h. winds struck Friday.
