Hundreds of customers in Roanoke City, Roanoke County, and Botetourt county were knocked off the grid when powerful storms packing strong winds, lots of rain, and even some hail come through Friday evening.

Power's been restored to most already.

The Brambleton Avenue area was hit especially hard.  Trees and limbs were thrown to the ground, and transformers were knocked from utility poles.

Two popular businesses are now trying to figure out how to still do business-- during what's usually a busy time of the week.

The manager at Dominos says she was told the power might not be back on until Saturday afternoon.

The Coffee Pot had a sign on the door stating it would be closed until the power comes back on.
