RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Jeff Davis Highway near West Hundred has just reopened after being shut down because of a downed power line.

Crews have been working throughout the night to clean up this area after last night's storms.

There is no word on when this road will reopen.

At the height of the storm, about 4,000 people were left in the dark overnight. Some roads were also covered with high water, but flooded areas have improved.
