With the switch from SCANA to Dominion Energy, the utility company said they are connected to additional resources within the organization – that includes additional crews, trucks, equipment and fleet resources.

“All of that gives us quicker access as we continue to mobilize, stage and prepare for this event,” said Paul Fischer, Public Affairs Specialist with Dominion Energy.

Customers can go to and register your mobile device to be able to report outages. You can also see area outages on that website.

What to expect: Fischer said Dominion Energy is staged and ready to go with more than 2,000 company resources and bringing in additional resources right now. He said they are staging about 140 line workers and tree crews in Walterboro as they prepare and watch Dorian’s track.
