Many areas of Virginia got hammered from a line of severe storms on Thursday. The severe storms forced a ground stop at the Richmond International Airport. Tornado warnings filled the landscape from the mountains to the Virginia coast. Trees and powerlines created a huge mess, as well as, flooding. Countless secondary roads had little to zero visibility at the height of the storms.
Dominion Virginia Power crews have been working through the night to restore power to thousands of customers across Virginia. To report a power outage call 1-866-366-4357.
