Thousands of residents in the Historic Triangle experienced a power outage Saturday night.

More than 6,000 customers were left without power in James City County and the City of Williamsburg around 7:30 p.m., according to Dominion Virginia Power’s interactive outage map.

By 8:45 p.m., the interactive map showed the number of customers without power had been reduced to about 3,200 – about 2,400 in James City County and about 740 in the city.

The two localities include about 42,863 Dominion customers.

Dominion cites a “circuit out” as the cause, and a spokesperson said two circuits in the substation locked out.

Crews are on scene and power is estimated to return to all customers in the area between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m.

The outage follows several rainy days caused by a slow-moving cold front, which resulted in flooding in several areas throughout the Historic Triangle and state.
