The four apartments at my end of the building never lost electricity...meaning 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs.
I was contacted by our power company and later by the maintenance man, to see if I'd lost power. Later they texted me if it had been restored, though I'd been fine all along. I felt bad because there's a tenant who uses a wheel chair downstairs in that part of the building. It was several hours before this "repair" was devised, whatever it is. And of course it may have started at 5 pm but it was full dark before the final "text" from the power company came through.

Incidentally, my personal account of the storm was that I had been awakened from a nap by a strike of thunder, well before the rain started, around 4:30. I had been using my C-Pap to help me breathe while asleep, which is electrically run, so I would definitely have noticed if the power went off! I'm not really sure which day this was, they are all running together while I stay home and recuperate.
