9,350 Va customers remain without power

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — About 9,350 utility customers in Virginia remain without electricity as a result of Superstorm Sandy.

Dominion Virginia Power says about 1,750 customers are without service Thursday, mostly in northern Virginia. The utility says it expects to have power restored by Thursday night except in a few locations where flooding or severe damage occurred.

A majority of about 1,100 outages reported by electric cooperatives also are in northern Virginia.

Appalachian Power is reporting about 6,500 outages, mainly in southwest Virginia. The utility says significant damage occurred to its transmissions lines. Restoration is expected to most areas in Russell and Tazewell counties by Thursday night, and in Buchanan and Dickenson counties by Friday night. The company had no estimate for restoration in other areas where damage was still being assessed.
