Dominion says Richmond outage due to transformer issue

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

A power outage plunged thousands of south Richmonders into darkness Sunday night.

Dominion Virginia Power's outage map on its website showed 3,795 customers affected by the outage as of 9 p.m., Sunday, about 30 minutes after the outage was first reported.

The company later confirmed the outage was due to a problem with a transformer. A Dominion representative said there was no estimated time when power will be restored, but noted that the outage map on the company's website updates with new totals every seven minutes.
