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.

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.
“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
