Crews have completed restoration work in most areas affected by the Wednesday night thunderstorms that left more than 28,000 Appalachian Power customers without electric service, and are now concentrating efforts on completing repairs in more heavily damaged areas.
Outages and Storm Response Efforts
Approximately 90 percent of customers affected by the Wednesday night storm have had service restored.
Of the fewer than 100 customers currently without power in Virginia, most are in Giles County.
In West Virginia most of the approximately 3,000 customers currently without power from the storm are in Kanawha, Boone, Fayette, Raleigh and Summers counties.
Crews are working in more heavily damaged areas to repair outages that affect small numbers of customers, and will remain committed to the effort until restoration is complete.
Customers still without electric service due to storm damage should have power restored by late tonight.
Restoration may extend into tomorrow in isolated cases with extensive damage.
