Downed Tree Causes South Reston Power Outage

Power lines in RestonClose to 5,000 Dominion Virginia Power customers in Reston were without power overnight as a large tree at Soapstone Drive and Lawyers Road fell on a light pole late Wednesday.

Dominion spokesman Chuck Penn said the tree took down wires and damaged the pole.

Penn says 4,816 Dominion customers were affected. Most of the affected customers are in homes off of Lawyers Road.

As of 8:30 a.m., about half of the customers had power restored.

Penn said power should be back on for the majority of customers by mid-morning.
