Dominion Energy restoration crews are out in force this morning and will continue to make repairs and restore service to 585,000 customers in Virginia and North Carolina who lost power due to Tropical Storm Michael, according to a release from Dominion Energy.
The powerful storm, previously a hurricane, blew through the region with torrential rain and tornadic wind conditions that topped 75 miles per hour in some areas. The heavy rain and wind damaged electric infrastructure and brought down trees on power lines in several regions served by the company.
“As we begin this multi-day restoration effort, we appreciate the patience of our customers and urge them to stay safe and mindful of electric wires that may be hidden by downed trees or flooded streets,” said Ed Baine, senior vice president - Electric Distribution. “We are dedicated to restoring power as safely and quickly as possible and will work around the clock until all of our customers are restored.”
