Crews hope to restore 95% power by Friday night

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Dominion Virginia Power reports it has about 87,000 customers still without power since Irene.

Dominion hopes to have 95 percent power restoration by the end of the night Friday.

About 300,000 people were without power after the storm passed through. While that number has significantly decreased, many are still obviously frustrated their lights are out.

Dominion wants to reach their goal of 95 percent power restoration Friday night so, over the weekend, crews can focus on those smaller pockets of power outages.

Dominion continues to post a list of the areas scheduled to be worked that day — it's been released between 9 and 10 most mornings, and we will get that out on facebook, twitter and our website as soon as it comes out.
