Del Ray residents were in for a rude awakening this morning as many discovered early this morning that power to the neighborhood was out.
As of 8:45 a.m., most of that power has been restored, but Dominion said 367 residents at the north end of the neighborhood still remain in the dark.
The Dominion Energy map indicated restoration of power is estimated at sometime between noon and 3 p.m.
At the peak of the outage this morning there were around 2,100 Del Ray residents without power. Dominion Energy spokesperson Peggy Fox said on social media the outage was caused by an underground issue. The problem was isolated and both schools in the affected area have been restored.
We are investigating an underground issue in Alexandria.
Crews have isolated the problem–we are now at 368 customers out. Both schools should be back on.
Crews are working to identify the issue and fix it. https://t.co/Nl4zjd0Us3
