Wolf Trap Neighborhood Posts Creative Cry for Help
A creative cry for help in one powerless Albemarle county neighborhood may be answered.
It is a story we have heard in so many neighborhoods: people are in misery after nearly six hot days without power. Wolf Trap Road - just off Route 20 - has been in the dark for days.
More than 60 homes that rely on well water have not had water or electricity since the intense storm whipped through central Virginia Friday night.
On Wolf Trap Road, someone decided to call attention to their plight by placing a sign that reads, "Wolf trap's power out since Friday night - help us."
We caught up with Doug Trainum who has been taking care of his mom, sister, and two aunts. Trainum hopes the sign pushes Dominion Virginia Power to fix their power situation as soon as possible.
"If nothing else it enlightened everyone's spirit and let them know that we need help. There's a lot of elderly on this road - people 70 years and up," he said.
Dominion Power was working on site when we visited the neighborhood. A majority of the neighbors were very kind to the men working and popped over to thank them for their efforts to restore power quickly.
The workers say they hope to have all power restored on Wolf Trap Road by Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.
