Here is a visual of the restoration work for members in the Virginia area on the 300 circuit.

We are making every effort to get members power back on. Thank you for your patience and understanding. #2021DecTornado #BeSafe

Update: Severe damage to transmission lines powering our substations need repaired before power can be restored to our members. Our transmission provider and several contractors are working to make these repairs to the transmission lines and MEC crews are working at repairing the damage to the distribution system. This will take most of the night. All crews will work until everyone has power restored.

Numerous outages as severe weather moves through our service territory. Lineman have been dispatched.
