AEP working to restore power to thousands

Posted:

PRINCETON (WVVA) - Appalachian Power crews were working Friday to assess damage to power lines caused by Thursday's snowstorm.

The majority of the outages were in Southwest Virginia.

Phil Moye with Appalachian Power says it could take crews several days to fully restore service.

A more specific estimate of restoration times was expected Friday evening.

Moye says the storm did not cause the amount of damage the region saw following last summer's derecho that cut off power to many for up to two weeks.
