Power outages in Hartwood, North Stafford
About 3,850 Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative (NOVEC) customers in Stafford County were without power Wednesday afternoon, though crews expect electricity to be restored between 5 and 5:30, according to the agency’s website.
The power went out just after 2 p.m. in large parts of Hartwood and in neighborhoods off Mountain View, Poplar and Garrisonville roads in the north part of the county.
NOVEC is still investigating the cause of the outage, which affects about 80 percent of their customers in Stafford County and another 228 customers in Fauquier.
