Wind Storm Damage Clean Up in Danville


Reporter: Angela Fowler

Danville, VA- About 1,100 customers in Danville are still without power from Friday night's windstorm that hit the area around 10 p.m.

Saturday, there were downed power lines, trees and lots of damage left in the storm's path.

Crews say they will be working a nonstop schedule to remove downed trees and restore electricity on what is sure to be one of the hottest days of the year.

City Manager Joe King says that he is proud of the quick response that public works and public safety responders have demonstrated and he also encourages those without power to seek shelter with family and their local churches if possible.

Property owners experiencing damage to buildings should contact their insurance companies. Claims involving damage by city-owned trees should be reported to the City Attorney's at 799-5122.

The storm couldn't have happened at a worst time because most people were left without air conditioning during the intense heat.

"We came up here and we saw this tree totally blocking Virginia Avenue and saw how it had brought the power lines down so we knew there wouldn't be any power last night" said Kathryn Davis, a radio journalist.
