UPDATE Tuesday: Power Outages, Road Information for Fairfax Station and Clifton Residents

Hundreds were still without power Tuesday afternoon.

UPDATE: 1 p.m. Tuesday

Power Outages

Hundreds in Fairfax Station and Clifton are still without power on Tuesday.

According to Dominion Virginia Powers’ interactive outages map, Fairfax Station homes near Hampton Road and Henderson Road seem to be the most severely effected by the outages. As of Tuesday, about 400 customers are without power in that area. That is down from over 600 on Monday.

Another 10 or so homes are without power in the Clifton area, according to NOVEC’s outages information.

“It could’ve been a whole lot worse,” said Clifton’s Mayor Bill Holloway. “I think with the weekend everyone could get out of the house for a little bit and come back at night. And neighbors help neighbors.”

To get up to the minute outage information from Dominion, go to their website or call 1-866-DOM-HELP (1-866-366-4357).

When do you think the power will be back on????

JMAC, calling your power company directly with your address may be the best way to find that out. If they have work scheduled to fix a fallen tree in your zone, for example, they would probably be in the best position to tell you when that will be happening.

Edited to add: I'm also hearing from residents that the Davis General Store/Gas Station in Clifton is also open, but I can't get through to them on the phone to confirm. Has anyone been out there?

Thank you!!

All the stores in Clifton are open but unsure of Davis.

Seemed like power was restored on Hampton rd starting from over fountain head bridge on out to 123. There's trucks parked there right now, though no sign of any much needed work from bridge on Hampton to henderson. I am really hoping 1 more day will get that done.
