RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- More than 134,000 customers remain without electricity in Virginia following a winter storm that dumped up to 20 inches in parts of the state.

Most of the snow fell in central and western Virginia.

Electric cooperatives report more than 72,900 outages Thursday morning. About 58,800 Dominion Virginia Power customers are without electricity. Appalachian Power outages total more than 2,700.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says it aims to have all state-maintained roads passable within 48 hours after the storm's end on Wednesday.

As of midnight Wednesday, Virginia State Police responded to more than 650 storm-related traffic accidents and about 570 disabled vehicles across the state. State police say a majority of the crashes involved only damaged vehicles.
