RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

A powerful line of showers made its way through the region last night.

Strong winds brought down trees and power lines in some areas. Thousands were in the dark. At the height of the storm, more than 700 Dominion Power customers in Goochland were without power. As of 6:00 a.m. most customers had their power restored.

One of the hardest hit areas was Henrico County. The storm knocked down a large tree along Fitzhugh Avenue and Orchard Road, near Monument Avenue.
