Loudoun County Schools Spokesperson Wayde Byard says the outage is not a big deal and happens at several schools throughout the county about two or three times each week. All schools have generators.

Dominion Power reports all but 60 customers should have power restored shortly after 1 p.m. Full restoration is expected by 4 p.m.
