Apparently, about half of Virginia's and West Virginia's residents lost power Friday night, all from the insane winds that powered through this part of the country. Appalachian Power is responding to significant power outages across its service territory resulting from strong thunderstorms and rotating winds of up to 65 miles an hour that moved through the area Tuesday evening, June 10. As many as 67,000 customers in West Virginia, Virginia and Tennessee lost service Tuesday night. On Tuesday, Appalachian Power notified its workers and contractors to be packed and ready to respond Wednesday morning. Customers are reminded that during storm restoration situations, Appalachian Power tree crews clear rights of way of trees and move on to the next location.


By commenting, you are agreeing to Appalachian Magazine's comments policy, which includes receiving periodic updates via email. The storm caused significant damage to the system, including broken poles and downed wires. Fallen power lines are dangerous because they carry an electric current that can cause serious or fatal injury. Meteorologists are forecasting additional scattered thunderstorms could move across Appalachian Power’s service area Wednesday, which could affect restoration efforts in some locations. About 400 additional line mechanics and 100 assessors will be brought in to assist company restoration efforts in what will be a multi-day effort.


Better estimates of restoration times will be provided throughout the day as we gather assessment information. If you encounter fallen wires, stay away from them and immediately contact Appalachian Power.
