 Richmond, Va. (Newsradiowrva.com) -  Dominion Energy says most, if not all of the customers without power should have their electricity restored tonight.  However, Spokesman Rob Richardson says a few may stretch into Tuesday.

Richardson says at this point, they are working on some of the hardest hit areas, and often, circuits where they are only restoring power to a small number of homes.  Dominion restores power by first focusing on critical infrastructure, followed by work that restores the largest number of people the fastest.

At the peak, following Tropical Storm Michael, nearly 600,000 customers were without power.
