MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis area was just under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning, and that means power outages across the city.

MLGW reports more than 18,000 accounts without power as of about 10 p.m. Each account could serve more than one person, so many more people could be affected.

The warning for Shelby County expired at 10 p.m. Several other counties in the Mid-South also experienced severe storms throughout the evening.
