Rappahannock County residents who lost power as a result of Monday’s snowstorm may not have service restored for several days.

Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, the area’s sole energy provider, in a news release said the organization is underway in what it’s calling an historic effort to restore electricity to more than 90,000 of its customers whose lines were interrupted by trees that toppled under the weight of wet and heavy snow and strong winds. The storm’s impact on the power grid and related equipment left more than 600 individual damage locations for crews to address, REC said.
