Verizon is providing free Internet and telephone services to Alexandria residents who continue to experience power and service outages as a result of last week’s storm.
Verizon is stationing an air-conditioned mobile unit at T.C. Williams High School from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday for city residents to escape the heat, charge their devices, connect to the Internet and make telephone calls.
Dominion Power told city officials it expects 90 to 95 percent of its Alexandria customers will have power restored by Thursday evening. Virtually all remaining customers should have power restored by Saturday night, but those in areas where the most severe damage occurred may not have power restored until Sunday.
As of Thursday morning, some pockets in Del Ray, Rosemont and Beverley Hills remained without power.
Dominion has brought in additional crews in its restoration efforts and is working around the clock.
