Kudos and questions over power outage

On December 12, 2013 at approximately 4:30 p.m, there was a loud crash and flash on the power pole across the street from us. This caused the power to go out. Our power came right back on but it stayed off in the townhouses. This occurred three or four more times until 11:30 p.m, with the power going off and back on.

The workers had been locked out since, I believe June. I must tell you that it scared the heck out of me to think of these power surges happening. What appliances could have blown in our homes and would you replace them?

I give kudos to, I think it was management, for all the work they did to get everything up and running. I woke up at 5 a.m. and they were still on the job!
