Utility Crews Restoring Power Across Virginia After Michael

October 15, 2018

Utility crews will be working throughout the weekend to restore power to Virginia customers affected by Tropical Storm Michael.

Dominion Energy said in an outage update Saturday morning that more than 6,000 personnel were working to get power back up for 160,000 customers who remained without service.

More than 600,000 Dominion customers were impacted in what the company says was the sixth-largest outage in its history.

Dominion said it expects to have the “vast majority” of customers’ power restored by the end of the day Monday.

Appalachian Power reported around 9,000 customer outages as of late Saturday morning.

Michael brought high winds and flash flooding to Virginia after making landfall in Florida. State officials have blamed at least five deaths on the storm.

The Wakefield office of the National Weather Service said it confirmed seven tornadoes from Thursday associated with Michael.
