Dominion Energy Virginia Prepares for Weekend Winter Storm, Urges Customers to Prepare as Well

RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Energy Virginia crews are prepared for the second storm of the year, which is expected to bring winter weather across the company's service area beginning Sunday. The storm could bring snow, ice, sleet, freezing rain and high winds to parts of Virginia, which has the potential to cause power outages.

Dominion Energy's full contingent of crews and contractors is being assisted by utilities as far away as Louisiana and Oklahoma to ensure a safe and timely response. The Company has also pre-staged construction and patrol resources in areas expected to be most impacted. Storerooms and warehouses across the system have been replenished from last week's storm, including those in the hardest hit areas in Fredericksburg, Charlottesville, and Central Virginia. 

"Our crews are ready to rise to any challenge this storm will bring. Customers should prepare, as well, so they can remain safe until our work is done," said Charlene Whitfield, senior vice president of Power Delivery for Dominion Energy.

Here's how customers can stay safe:

To ensure the fastest response, Dominion Energy asks customers to report their power outages. The fastest way to report or track an outage is using the Dominion Energy app or online at DominionEnergy.com. Customers may also call 1-866-DOM-HELP (1-866-366-4357) to report an outage.
