Storm could bring power outages

Even a little wet snow and ice could cause power outages. If you are a Dominion Energy customer and you lose electrical power, call 1-866-DOM-HELP (1-866-366-4357). You can report and check outages online to Dominion here. Rappahannock Electric Cooperative customers can call 1-800-552-3904; their outage center page is here. If you experience an outage, report it immediately; the more information your power company has about outages, the more quickly they can respond. Beware of downed power lines, and remember that they could be covered by snow. Assume they are energized and dangerous. If you have a generator, be sure it is fueled, tested, and properly connected before the severe weather arrives. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and always operate outdoors with good ventilation. Improper use of a generator could be life-threatening for customers and for line crews working to restore power. VDOT’s website includes frequently asked questions, driving tips and tools for motorists to learn more about VDOT’s winter preparedness.
