Energy providers in Virginia say at least 35,000 customers are without power after storms rumbled through the state early Thursday.

Dominion Energy reports more than 13,000 customers without power in its coverage area, part of which is in northeastern North Carolina, as of 4 p.m. on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Appalachian Power says almost 24,000 customers were without power in its coverage area, part of which extends into West Virginia.

A line of thunderstorms passed through the state early Thursday morning and was followed by gusty winds which were expected to persist into the evening.
