UPDATE: As of 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, there were a little over 1,500 homes and businesses without power in the metro Richmond area, according to Dominion Energy’s outage map.
As of noon Saturday, Sept. 23, little more than 2,000 were without power, according to a spokesperson for Dominion Energy.
This is after an initial report of about 113,000 customers in the service area in Virginia and North Carolina were without power.
A spokesperson for Dominion Energy said crews will continue to work to restore power.
The energy provider asked that anyone who sees a downed pole or wire report it by calling 866-366-4357 and that callers stay at least 30 feet away, since line could be energized and dangerous.
