1. Unfortunately the power outage has nothing to do
with his block, the damage is usually within the lines between his transformer and the originating power source. As a Texan we know that yes there may be no damage in your neighborhood or street but the lines to get the power TO you needs to be repaired or replaced. The homes with power had continuous power lines that could be the reason theses homes has power, if you can get one of the trucks to actually stop ask them where is your transformer and please look at the lines to restore. If you have power trucks in your neighborhood usually they ARE following lines to replace these lines, yes I know this will not help them but it is unfortunately what it is.
Try looking for the CLOSEST homes with power around you if in any direction it is still dark then there are major lines to repair or replace; prayerfully it is just replacing a transformer or reconnecting lines.
