NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - More than 20 schools are closed due to power outages and about 49,000 customers remain without electricity a day after powerful thunderstorms rolled through Hampton Roads.
One man was killed during Tuesday's storms when winds up to 90 mph moved a dock crane at the Naval Shipyard in Portsmouth and pinned him between two portable buildings.
Shipyard spokesman Michael Brayshaw says 30-year-old Walter Amos was crushed.
Emergency officials say five adults watching a baseball game at a Virginia Beach high school were injured when high winds blew a pole vault mat into them.
Dominion Virginia Power says 179,000 customers lost power. As of 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, 49,459 customers remained without electricity. Power is expected to be restored to all areas by late Thursday evening.
