Dominion Virginia power has now restored service to more than 75 percent of the more than 1 million customers left without service when severe thunderstorms struck the company’s system on Friday and Saturday evenings. They still estimate that they will have service restored to 80-85 percent of all customers affected by the storms by Tuesday night and 90-95 percent by Thursday night.
The weather remains hot across Virginia, and those remaining without power, especially the elderly and persons with medical conditions, should get to a safe place, such as a cooling center, that does have electricity.
Two cooling centers will be opened Monday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. for Prince William County residents.
