Chesterfield power outages due to equipment failure

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Shortly after 2:00 p.m. Sunday, nearly 2,300 Dominion Virginia Power customers lost electricity in Chesterfield, but before the hour was up, it had been restored.

Dominion tells NBC12 the failures were the result of an equipment failure and were dispatched immediately to fix it.

Many of you have already reported your power has been restored, but Dominion says it could take just a little while longer to restore electricity in some parts of the county.

Just before 3:00 p.m., outages were down to just 193.
