Appalachian Power crews continue to try to restore power after heavy snow caused widespread outages. 

As of Tuesday afternoon, more than 26,000 customers in Virginia remain without power. That's down from over 51,000 customers on Monday morning, and down from over 63,000 on Sunday. 

More than 1,300 AEP crew members are working to restore power. Additional workers from outside Appalachian Power's service area arrived Monday to help as well.
