Arlington Residents Still Without Power | News
ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA) -- As of 11 p.m. Tuesday, 219 homes in Arlington were still without power. A storm Sunday night knocked out power to more than 11,000 homes.
Crews with Dominion Virginia Power have been working around the clock to get the power restored, but their original promise of having all the power back on by 6 p.m Tuesday night was not met. Instead, the deadline was pushed back until midnight on Tuesday.
The bulk of the outages that remained late Tuesday night were isolated to the area off of Williamsburg Boulevard and 33rd Street.
Polly Ranfone, who lives in the neighborhood said, "It's been an inconvenience, but we are trying to stay patient."
Neighbors in the effected areas said the humid and hot temperatures have made the situation worse as it has been difficult to stay cool.
