Dominion Sends Power Trucks to Coast for Hurricane Arthur
As people leave their vacations on the Outer Banks of North Carolina early due to Hurricane Arthur, power crews from Virginia are headed that way to help deal with the storm’s aftereffects.
Dominion is massing trucks and crews on the Virginia and North Carolina coasts. Some left from Charlottesville Thursday. Bucket trucks and additional crews from across inland Virginia and North Carolina were deployed to the company's operation centers on the coast early Thursday morning.
The Chesapeake and Virginia Beach areas, Elizabeth City, North Carolina, and the Outer Banks all have fully staffed centers that will assist in repairing fallen power lines. Crews in those areas will also be monitoring power outages from the storm.
Dominion officials are encouraging people in those high-risk areas to monitor the website for updates with a smartphone or tablet if they lose power.
