UPDATED: Power mostly restored after extended post-storm outage

Arlington power outages 4/22/23 (via Dominion)

Just over 5,000 Dominion customers were without power Saturday afternoon, according to the power company’s website.

The large outage, centered around Columbia Pike but running from Douglas Park in the south to Lyon Park in the north, is the result of storm damage, Dominion said. A line of thunderstorms with gusty winds and heavy rain rolled through Arlington prior to the outage.

A total of 5,044 customers were affected as of 2:45 p.m.

Dominion reported nearly 20,000 outages throughout Northern Virginia following the storms. The good news is that an earlier Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been dropped for Northern Virginia locales, suggesting that the worst of the storms is over.

Update at 7:20 p.m. — Power has mostly been restored after an hours-long outage. Fewer than 250 homes and businesses in Arlington remain in the dark as night falls, according to Dominion.
