According to Dominion Power, there was a significant power outage in Norfolk that affected over 5, 000 customers.

They say the outage started at 7:09 p.m.

They say it seemed to have been caused by an equipment failure.

Crews believe there was a problem with a cable at Granby St. and City View.

Many customers were restored by 7:45 pm.

Now about 50 people are still waiting for their services to be turned back on. They say all customers should be restored by 9:50 p.m.
