Appalachian Power says on its website that nearly 13,000 customers were without service Sunday, including nearly 4,700 in Kanawha County where a substation had been under water. Crews are now in the process of installing a mobile transformer. Restoration work also is ongoing at flooded substations serving customers in Clay, Greenbrier and Summers counties.

The utility says it expects service to be restored by Monday night.
