(WFXR) — Appalachian Power says more than 900 people are without power in both Roanoke City and Roanoke County Wednesday morning because of various outages in the area, especially one in the southwest corner of the city.

As of 9:28 a.m. on Wednesday, May 26, Appalachian Power says 473 customers in Roanoke County are without power due to three outage cases while 455 customers in Roanoke City are without power due to six outage cases.

A large number of these customers are impacted by three outages in the localities.

One major outage in the far southwest corner of Roanoke City — and even crossing the border into Roanoke County — started at 1:35 a.m. on Wednesday because of a vehicle crash. That outage is impacting 657 customers, but the company does not expect to restore power until 6 p.m.
