Richmond, VA (wrva.com) - Dominion Energy says everyone should have their lights restored, at the latest, by Wedneday evening.  Spokeswoman Daisy Pridgen says most power should be restored by tonight, but some of the hardest hit areas will stretch into tomorrow.  At the peak, 136,000 customers lost power in Virginia.

Pridgen says Northern Virginia, Western Virginia, and Central Virginia were the hardest hit.  Crews from Eastern Virginia are being sent to those areas to help with restoration.

Pridgen says lightning, wind, and heavy rain all contributed to the amount of outages.
