Downed tree knocks out electricity to 500

SoVaNow.com / October 21, 2019
A fallen tree that landed on an electrical line knocked out power to some 500 customers Sunday morning and afternoon in the Town of South Boston.

Scott Miller, a spokesperson for Dominion Energy, said the power line workers had to shut off service for a brief time to make it possible to remove the downed tree and address other unspecified equipment problems.

Power was out for some downtown businesses and in neighborhoods in the eastern part of town. Service was interrupted around 11 a.m. and power was restored for all customers by 3:30 p.m., Miller said.

He did not have information on what might have caused the tree to fall, nor the location, although the problem apparently originated near the Reedy Creek Substation next to Plywood Drive.
