(Updated at 11:20 a.m.) Just over 2,000 Dominion customers were without power in Arlington this morning.
Though there are small, scattered outages around the county after last night’s storms, the main outage is affecting the Shirlington, Fairlington and Claremont neighborhoods.
More than 3,500 Dominion customers were also in the dark across the border in Alexandria as a result of the outage. No restoration time was given on the Dominion Energy website.

As of 10:45 a.m., the number of Dominion customers without power in Arlington had dropped to just over 1,000.
An incident involving a county vehicle along S. Walter Reed Drive near Four Mile Run may have contributed to the outage.
“At approximately 9:17 a.m., police were dispatched to S. Four Mile Run Drive and S. Walter Reed Drive for the report of a traffic complaint,” said Arlington County Police Department spokeswoman Ashley Savage. “Upon arrival, it was determined that the bucket of an Arlington County Government truck struck wires connected to a utility pole.”
The incident caused the utility pole to topple onto some nearby trees.
Dominion crews are currently working to replace the pole and fix the lines. The crash happened a block away from a power substation.
