Update at 6 p.m. — The number of outages is down to 520, according to Dominion’s website. The cause of the outage, which is now mostly affecting the Arlington Ridge neighborhood, is a tree on a power line, the power company says
Earlier: Nearly 3,400 Dominion customers are without power in parts of South Arlington due to an outage.
The outage is affecting portions of Pentagon City, its surrounding neighborhoods, and eastern Columbia Pike. Firefighters are investigating initial reports of wires down around the intersection of S. Arlington Ridge Road and 23rd Street S., near where a tree crew was working.
Dominion is currently listing an estimated restoration time of 6-9 p.m.
The outage is affecting both single-family home neighborhoods and commercial areas. There have been several reports of power surges in the area, including at the Aurora Hills library.
Due to weather conditions, the Aurora Hills Library is currently experiencing intermittent power surges.
While the Library remains open for browsing, holds pickup and check out, Public PCs are unavailable.
Wi-Fi access may also be intermittent. pic.twitter.com/h9p8UdUkil
