Dominion continues to make progress in restoring power to Arlington households in the wake of Friday night’s storms.
As of 8:00 Sunday night, 33,879 Dominion customers were still without power in Arlington, down from 59,000 around noon on Saturday. Dominion says it hopes to restore power to 80-85 of all customers by Tuesday night, and 90-95 percent of customers by Thursday night.
“While we are dedicated to restoring power as quickly as possible, safety remains the No. 1 priority,” said Dominion spokesman, in a statement. “We want our customers to be safe, and we want our crews to be safe. Our crews will be working under extremely trying conditions due to the extreme heat while wearing heavy protective clothing. We ask that everyone be considerate of them and not interfere in the restoration process.”
In a press release, the company noted that it’s focusing on restoring power to larger customers before focusing on neighborhoods.
Initial restoration work focuses on large electric transmission lines and critical facilities such as emergency call centers, hospitals and cooling centers. For that reason, customers may not see crews working in their neighborhoods in the initial days. The focus then turns to power lines serving large numbers of customers and then to neighborhood circuits. Dominion will work around the clock until all customers have their power restored.
