Nearly 400 Reston Residents Enter Fourth Day Without Power

Some Reston residents are facing a four-day streak without power after Friday’s windstorm.

Roughly 400 residents remain without power near Lawyers Road and Handlebar Road. Dominion Energy indicates the outage is “pending investigation.”

The company expects to restore power in Northern Virginia by 11 p.m. tomorrow.

After a strong wind storm that impacted Dominion Energy’s territory on Friday, March 2nd, over 690,000 customers were affected, putting this event in the top five of the most devastating weather events behind Hurricane Isabel and Hurricane Irene. Since then, Dominion Energy has restored 97% of the affected customers. With calmer, fairer weather and additional resources, our crews are working hard to restore electricity to our customers.

Crews have either been dispatched or are working in the area.
