Dominion Virginia Power has restored electric service to more than 75 percent of the 322,000 customers affected by Hurricane Sandy and expects to have power restored to virtually all customers by Thursday night.

Dominion employees, retirees, contractors and crews from other companies are fully engaged in this effort, and work will continue around the clock until power is restored to every customer affected by this storm.

In Northern Virginia, where the storm's impact was greatest, restoration is expected to be completed Thursday night in all but a very few locations where flooding or severe damage occurred. Repairs in the rest of Dominion's service area are expected to be completed by 11 p.m. today.
