RICHMOND, Va. -- Dominion Energy Virginia and North Carolina restoration employees and contractors from throughout the country are out in force now to restore power by 5:00 p.m. Friday to all clients affected by the high winds and snow affecting clients through Thursday morning, mostly in the eastern portion of Virginia and North Carolina.

As of 4:00 p.m., over 75% of the almost 90,000 clients affected throughout our system were restored following crews completed fixes at 550 harm places.

Crews continue to operate round the clock to finish repairs.

"Being without electricity in this intense cold weather may be an outstanding hardship for our clients and we are intensely focused on getting the lights back as safely and quickly as you can," explained Ed Baine, senior vice president-Distribution, Dominion Energy. "Please remain alert to downed lines which might be partly concealed by snow and also use more caution on the slippery streets and also to be on the alert for crews working near roadways."

Traveling by teams has been affected by snow and ice, but crews are focused in the hardest-hit regions to speed recovery.
