Residents of Northern Virginia are cleaning up after yet another bad storm.
Several people living near Belle View Boulevard and Cavalier Drive in Alexandria are without power, something that's becoming all too familiar.
So when Carrie Chabot looked out of her front window and saw all the power lines in flames, she braced herself for the worst.
"There's a couple of us who never seem to have power when our neighbors do," Chabot says. "The last time, we were without for eight days."
Downed trees are getting to be a common sight too. One came down on Olmi Landrith in Alexandria, landing on a house.
That's why Linda Welton raced home from the Gaylord Center to check on her property. Not before capturing some dramatic video of the storm swirling over the water.
"I saw the storm coming over the water and my house is directly across from that and I realized it's a danger to me," Welton says.
Neighbor Gene Fischer got caught in the storm too.
"I was at the Nationals game," Fisher says. "Got us pretty soggy."
The good news, his dog Ruby was fine back at the house. None of his neighbors were hurt.
All they need is electricity..
