ALEXANDIA, VA. - Though the future of Hurricane Dorian remains unclear, Dominion Energy crews from Northern Virginia are ready to help in areas that are expected to be most affected.

Twelve employees from the power company — in four bucket trucks, one augur truck to help set poles in the ground and a specialty truck — pulled out of the Dominion Energy lot in Alexandria, Virginia, heading southeast.

“We’ve repositioned those crews from our Northern Virginia areas, where we’re not anticipating seeing much impact, to the Hampton Roads area, where we are anticipating significant impact,” said spokesperson Meredith Gray.

“They will be in the Hampton Roads area before the storm hits,” Gray said. “And then, depending on what the impact of the storm is, they will be sent out to help restore power.”
