Storm Outages Decline in Va. to About 5,350

RICHMOND, Va. — Utilities have restored service to thousands of customers in Virginia who lost electricity during a winter storm on Sunday.

As of 4:30 p.m., about 5,350 customers are without electricity. That’s down from about 114,000 on Monday.

Dominion Virginia Power reports about 3,890 outages, most of which are in Northern Virginia.

About 1,250 customers served by four electric cooperatives are without power.

Appalachian Power reports 210 outages in Southwest Virginia. The utility says wintry weather on Tuesday could cause additional outages and complicate efforts to restore power.
