Here's how many people are without power in Hampton Roads

Remember, if you're using a generator, it needs to be kept outside. They give off carbon monoxide gas, which can be deadly.

HAMPTON, Va. — As of 8:30 a.m. Sunday, there were just over 2,000 power outages in the Hampton Roads area, according to the Dominion Energy outage tracker. 

The highest numbers were reported from Virginia Beach, where 1,472 Dominion customers were without power, and Mathews, where there were 378 people without power.

At one point Friday night, more than 53,000 people were without power because of the storm. That number has been creeping back down since about 8:30 p.m. Friday. 

Dominion Energy crews worked through the night to help get the lights back on across the 757. Spokeswoman Bonita Billingsley Harris said they're focusing especially on Norfolk, Virginia Beach and the Peninsula.
