Emergency Information
2/11/2014

Snow will advance northward over Dominion Virginia Power's system on Wednesday evening. It will fall heaviest overnight and Thursday morning and end by early Thursday evening. Check this page for updates, if any, on the upcoming storm. Visit our Winter Weather Emergency Preparedness page.

Across much of Northwest and Central Virginia, total snow accumulations of 6-12 inches are most likely, while some mixed precipitation will keep amounts lower toward the east. Winds on Thursday will become 10-20 mph during the day. Additional light snow will be possible later Friday into Saturday and again on Sunday.

This heavy, wet snow could knock trees and limbs into power lines and create outages. Plans and preparations are under way so Dominion Virginia Power crews are ready to respond.

Please remind customers to stay away from fallen wires and debris. Treat all fallen wires and anything touching them as though they are energized and report their location as soon as possible by calling 1-866-DOM-HELP (1-866-366-4357). During the calls, customers should follow prompts that will connect them with company representatives. This will help provide accurate, exact information to direct crews to these locations.

If the power goes out, customers should contact Dominion using any mobile device at dom.com or through the company's toll free number, 1-866-DOM-HELP (1-866-366-4357).

  • Dominion urges our customers to have a plan in place in the event of outages. This includes having battery-operated radios and clocks, multiple flashlights, and extra batteries on hand.
  • Generators should also be operated according to safe procedures and should never be run inside homes, crawl spaces, or other enclosed areas, including garages.
  • Other good sources of information during and after the storm include Dominion's Twitter feed, www.twitter.com/DomVAPower, and our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/dominionvirginiapower.
