CENTRAL VIRGINIA (WRIC) — Residents in Virginia are feeling the impacts of Thursday’s winter storm. Many have been left without power and reporting outages this morning.
In total, the state is reporting 39,140 outages. Electrical crews are actively working to resolve power issues — some customers are still dealing with the effects of last weekend’s storm.
As of 1:30 p.m., Dominion Energy is reporting that 15,243 customers are without power. In our area, Richmond and Chesterfield are reporting the most outages.

- Dinwiddie: 477
- Hanover County: 436
- Henrico County: 610
- City of Richmond: 5,481
Samantha Moore from Dominion Energy said they were cautiously optimistic yesterday, but as freezing rain continued to fall, they were expecting to see an increase in outages today.
At this time, Dominion said there is no timeframe for getting lights back on. Crews have to access the damage and then begin working when it is safe.
