CLINTWOOD, VA (WJHL) -

Two Dickenson County schools are dismissing early today because of a power outage.

Burl Mooney, with Dickenson County Schools, said the affected schools are Clintwood High School and Longs Fork Middle School.

Students will be dismissed at 11:45 a.m.

It could be 1 p.m. before power is restored, Mooney said.

According to Teresa Hamilton Hall with Appalachian Power, the outage was caused by a dead tree that fell on a transmission line around 9:45 this morning.

About 5,000 customers were without power in Wise and Dickenson counties earlier today but the majority of customers have electricity now, Hall said.

The remainder of customers should have power restored within a few hours, but some areas could take longer.
