About 8,000 residents remain without power; storm to cost county several million dollars
By Tom Lappas, Citizen Editor Henrico Government
JUNE 20, 11:10 A.M. – As cleanup from last week's powerful storms continues throughout Henrico County today, Dominion Virginia Power crews are working to restore the remaining 8,000 Henrico customers who were without power as of 11 a.m. Most of those customers are in very localized pockets scattered throughout the county.
But even though the storm is long gone, Henrico officials are cautioning county residents to be careful in its aftermath. Citizens should stay away from downed power lines – even those that are not energized – because Dominion may send test charges through the lines to pinpoint outage locations, energizing them briefly. Restoration of power may occasional prompt fires in homes, and the re-energization of power lines could spark small fires if trees or other debris come in contact with them. > Read more.
