EMORY, Va. -

Students at Emory & Henry College are returning to their dorms after a power outage Tuesday evening.

The dean of Emory & Henry College says 94 students were displaced from three residence halls due to a power outage.

The power went out when a construction crew working on a performing arts center hit a transformer.

We're told students were evacuated as a safety precaution.

Washington County Emergency management was standing by to provide cots in buildings around campus.
