Dead utility lines sit along the edge of Langhorne Road.
The damage is causing traffic lights to stay dark, and forcing thousands of people like Christina Ball to spend another day without electricity.
"I'm used to being able to go home," said Ball. "There's no food or anything like that, so that's extra money coming out of my paycheck, because I can't stay at home."
Ball is passing time in a cooling center at West Lynchburg Baptist Church. She's a student at Lynchburg College, and the church is a comfortable place to finish assignments.
Cooling centers continue to stay busy, since about half of Lynchburg still has no power.
"We've had to throw all of our food out, and we've had to rely on McDonalds and Wal-Mart, which can get pretty expensive," sad Biancia Tate, a storm victim who is using the cooling center at West Lynchburg Baptist.
Utility workers have come from other states to fix Lynchburg's outages, working long days for almost a week. Still, nearly 20,000 power customers in the city, including the WDBJ7 Lynchburg Newsroom, have no electricity.
The process is taking so long, because utility crews are having to rebuild the system of power lines. Crews are having to clean up fallen trees, while putting up new poles, wires, and transformers.
"It's amazing the damage that was done," said Tate.
Although they have a big job ahead, utilities like Appalachian Power still have a weekend deadline set to get all service restored.
People at cooling shelters hope it won't be longer than that.
"I hear it might cool down next week," said Ball. "If it doesn't, I'm probably going to be at cooling centers for the next couple of days."
