The June 16 thunderstorm that rocked the Richmond area left more than 170,000 Dominion Power customers without electricity. In the city of Richmond alone, 31,058 of 106,896 Dominion customers were without power! Many of those 31,000+ customers fall into two main categories: the unhooked homes (without standby generators) and the hooked up homes (with standby generators). Here’s a basic timeline that explains how things might’ve played out for either group:
Sound familiar? If yours is an unhooked home that had its power restored within 24 hours, you were actually one of the lucky utility customers this time around! In fact, more than 84,000 Dominion Power customers were still without power on the morning of Saturday, June 18 (a full 36 hours after the height of the storm).
