More than 1,000 Dominion customers are still without power following a round of strong storms Wednesday afternoon.
At the peak of the post-storm outages, the company reported more than 10,000 customers in the dark in Arlington County. As of 11:45 a.m. Thursday, that figure was down to 1,070. The outages are scattered throughout the county, with some concentrated in certain neighborhoods.
On its website, Dominion estimates that power will not be restored to all Arlington customers until 11 p.m. tonight. The company said that more than 52,000 lost electricity in Northern Virginia due to the storms, creating a backlog for power crews.
Among those still affected are Courthouse pub Ireland’s Four Courts and hundreds of residents of Lyon Park and Ashton Heights, where a large tree fell on power lines.

Dominion is not the only utility company experiencing service outages in Arlington. Comcast is also reportedly working to restore service to customers throughout the county.
