Known outages

7:22 p.m.: A large oak limb in the 600 block of Broadway fell just before dark Wednesday as the outer bands of Hurricane Michael reached Columbus. The limb knocked out power to a large part of the city’s Historic District, just before 7 p.m.

Capt. Mike Thierry of Dauphin Island, Ala., and his son brought their charter boats the Point Cadet Marina in Biloxi to get as far away from Hurricane Michael as possible.
