According to the Appalachian Power outage map and the City of Danville, there are no remaining outages in Danville as of late Tuesday morning.


About two-thirds of customers who were without power Monday were switched to another substation. Around 1,200 are still without power, according to the City of Danville.

Those still without power are located within Westover Drive from Woodlawn to the city limits, Riverside Drive from Spring Ave. to the city limits, Berry Hill Road, Vandola Road, Moorefield Bridge Road, and Meadowview Avenue.

A mobile transformer is being brought in to provide power, but may not be effective until midday Tuesday.


The City of Danville reports city crews are working to move some customers to another substation while the Westover components are being worked on. This will extend the outage estimate to potentially beyond 4 a.m. Tuesday.

A transformer bushing has been harbored by the blown lightning arrestor.


More than 3,500 customers are without power in Danville due to two bad lightning arresters, according to a release from the City of Danville.

Crews are currently working to replace the arresters that affected the Westover substation.

The process is estimated to be finished between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. according to the City of Danville.
