Virginia utility deploying crews to storm’s center

RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia’s largest electric utility is sending crews to the western and northwestern parts of the state where a March storm is expected to deliver a foot or more of wet, heavy snow.

A spokesman for Dominion Virginia Power said Tuesday the utility’s own meteorologists are forecasting the storm will have a “pretty profound” impact along the Interstate 81 corridor. Karl Neddenien says the utility is shifting crews from parts of the state that are likely to be spared the heaviest snowfall to areas that are expected to be hit hard.

The National Weather Service says snow should begin falling later Tuesday west of the Blue Ridge mountains. Meteorological technician Calvin Meadows says a foot of snow is expected, with up to 21 inches at higher elevations.
