Britt Barham stands in his residence in Raleigh on Saturday morning October 1, 2022. A tree fell into his child’s room at 6 p.m. Friday evening as the remnants of Hurricane Ian moved through the area.

Updated Saturday, Oct. 1 at 4 p.m.

More than 220,000 Duke Energy customers in North Carolina were still without power Saturday morning as the remnants of Ian — downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone Friday afternoon — passed through the state.

Ian will continue to weaken near the North Carolina-Virginia border through late today, according to the 11 a.m. report from the National Hurricane Center.


Photographer Jonathon Gruenke captured images of the cleanup in Raleigh for WUNC.
