“We are doing everything we can to prevent the situation from happening again,” said Ken Ashworth, director of the power and light division.

Service was restored for all but 200 customers by 9:45. The remaining customers had their power restored by 10:45 a.m.

Danville Utilities provides natural gas, water, wastewater and telecommunications services in Danville and distributes electricity to approximately 42,000 customer locations in a 500-square-mile service territory covering Danville, the southern third of Pittsylvania County, and small portions of Henry and Halifax counties.
