CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Severe thunderstorms on Thursday evening left several counties in Central Virginia without power. A cold front brought in the storms throughout the area, bringing strong winds and heavy rain. The storms are expected to pass by midnight, but clouds will linger over the area throughout the night.
Storms knocked down trees in the Winterpock Road area of Chesterfield County. Some of those trees fell over onto powerlines. Resident Joey Ayers was frustrated after his power went out.
“Well, it was an inconvenience, inconvenience to everybody. But the most inconvenience was the power was out. And everybody’s like ‘what’s going on with the power and what’s going on,’ tree down,” Ayers said.
More than 1,800 residents in Chesterfield dealt with power outages Thursday night.
