Dominion Power is adopting a new way of barricading areas where downed wires are found.
Yellow tape will mark where Dominion-owned power lines have fallen and could be dangerous to people. Orange tape will mark cable or communications wires that have fallen in storms.
Dominion crews will contact the appropriate company after discovering its lines have been damaged.
