100,000 without power across Virginia

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Thousands of Virginians are waking up in the dark Thursday morning.

Crews are making steady progress going into the morning. As of 10:00 a.m. there were 51,534 Dominion customers statewide without power.

Crews are experiencing quite a few problems in the Shenandoah Valley area. However, there are still about 3,600 customers without power in the Northern Virginia, and 5,700 in Richmond metro and Tri-cities areas. Many of the outages are due to downed power lines and trees.

Rappahannock Electric Cooperative was reporting 45,097 customers without power as of 10:00 a.m., which is down from 50,000 customers earlier Thursday morning. A majority of those outages were in Louisa, Culpeper, Orange and Spotsylvania counties, which each had more than 5,000 customers were in the dark. That's one of the reasons why Louisa County Schools are closed Thursday.

Southside Electric reported 340 customers without power. Nearly all of those customers are in Powhatan.

All of these companies will have crews out across the area throughout the morning.
