For thousands of customers in Alexandria’s West End, power is still out after last night’s storms.
According to Dominion Energy’s power outage map, 3,703 customers in the West End — from the border with Shirlington down to the Van Dorn Metro station — are currently without power.
The outages are broken into two sections, with an unfortunate handful of homes near Hammond Middle School caught in the overlap. The northern half of the outage has been identified as being caused by a blown circuit and work crews are currently dispatched to fix the problem. For the southern half, the cause is still under investigation.
Storming on and off here. Really coming down now. My mom is without power for a few hours in Alexandria.

Good morning! Clean-up and repair work is underway after last night's storms. Please be patient. If you come to an intersection with flashing or dark traffic lights,🚦 treat it as a stop sign.🛑
