It’s been more than 100 hours since Friday night’s powerful Derecho windstorm hit, and many in the Potomac Communities are still without power.

Dominion Virginia Power crews posted their work locations for today, where the utility says they’re working around the clock to restore power. (Locations listed below).

This morning, Dominion reports 1,561 customers out in Stafford – down from about 9,000 on Saturday. Dominion says 239 are still without power in Prince William.

The Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative reports 24 out in Prince William and one customer out in Stafford.

Crews performing the restoration work will face temperatures in the high 90s to 100 degrees today. The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for the region until 9 p.m., and that means it’ll feel like 100 to 105 degrees.
