Cascades apartments in Alexandria. No power for the past 12 hrs

Also want to add that Dominion has had crews out working nearly the entire time to fix the damage that was apparently caused by a drunk driver. I want to thank them for spending their holiday outside working rather than home with their families. This sucks for everyone and I'm sure we are all grateful for their hard work regardless of how long it's taking. Stay safe and warm.
