Good Thursday morning from Heather!
Several hundred customers are still without power this morning, mostly in Chesterfield and Goochland. Dominion Power says it is working to restore it. Many outages were centered overnight near Buford Avenue.
If you drive along Forest HIll Avenue, westbound traffic will be closed down to one lane between 7:30 am and 4:00 pm, while Public Utilities works on a natural gas main. The project is expected to take 90 days.
Lightning may have sparked a fire at an apartment overnight, forcing a mother and child out of their home. It happened at the St. John's Wood Apartments near German School Road in South Richmond. Firefighters stopped the flames from spreading to other apartments.
