CHANTILLY, Va. — Authorities in Fairfax County say tens of thousands of people were without power early Tuesday morning. Crews are still working to get power restored.
Dominion Energy Public Information Officer Peggy Fox tells WUSA9 that at the peak of the outage, more than 24,000 customers were without power in the Chantilly area of Fairfax County around 5 a.m.
Fox said around 4:16 a.m. a transmission line that feeds two substations went down, knocking out power in Chantilly and Centreville.
Fairfax County Police tell WUSA9 there were dark intersections all along Route 50 from Fairfax County Parkway to the Loudoun County line. Remember to treat those intersections as a four-way stop.
Power crews are currently working to get power restored to all customers.
