Dominion Works to Restore Power to Those Affected by Snowstorm

Posted: Updated:

After two days in the dark, thousands of people in central Virginia are wondering when their power will come back on.

Dominion Power says 90 percent of customers will have it restored by Friday evening. Crews will finish up in the hardest hit areas Saturday.

Dominion says contact with customers is key. The provider needs people to report power outages, and is now sending progress reports out to those people.

"One of the things we've learned from past storms is we need to reach our customers the way they want to be reached so we really have opened up some new channels. The social media is a good way to contact us now, we are pushing out a lot of information on social media and we're hearing a lot from our customers on social media," said Carl Zatkulak with Dominion Power.

Dominion Power says it will post restoration times for all remaining projects Friday morning.
