Dominion Virginia Power prepares for another storm

10 February 2010 - As Dominion Virginia Power crews finish restoring power to customers affected by the record-breaking weekend storm, the company also is preparing to respond to an approaching storm - the fourth in two months - by ensuring that adequate supplies, repair material and personnel are available.

The work crews who responded to the weekend storm already are in position in Northern Virginia and the Charlottesville area, where snowfall is expected to be heaviest. Crews also are in place at offices and locations throughout the Dominion Virginia Power service area.

Dominion anticipates a mixture of precipitation including snow, freezing rain and strong winds that could knock trees and limbs into power lines and create outages.
