VIRGINIA BEACH-Thousands of people across Hampton Roads - from York Co. to Va. Beach - lost power early Friday.
In Va. Beach, more than 3,000 customers were without power just before 7:00 a.m. when a pole on Bonney Road caught fire. The outage briefly impacted Kempsville Meadows and Larkspur Middle School. The power was back on long before students were due to arrive, Va. Beach Schools spokeswoman Lauren Wicks told WVEC.com.
Dominion Power spokeswoman Bonita Billingsley-Harris said all customers affected by that situation had power restored by 7:47 a.m.
The company is working to determine whether this morning's weather played a role in the outage.
