More than 1,000 people in Charlottesville were without power Sunday afternoon.
Authorities say a rotten telephone pole gave way and brought power lines down with it.
The pole came down around 12:30pm Sunday along Avon Street near the Charlottesville-Albemarle Regional Jail.
No one was hurt in the collapse, but it took crews a few hours to fix the problem.
Dominion Virginia Power says all but two of the homes affected were expected to get power back by 7:00pm Sunday night.
