WASHINGTON (AP) - Thousands of residents in the mid-Atlantic region still remain without power more than a week after deadly summer storms struck the area.
By Saturday afternoon, Baltimore Gas and Electric was reporting the most outages. The utility says nearly 7,600 customers are without power, primarily in Baltimore City and Baltimore County. Howard County has more than 1,100 outages.
In the Washington area, Pepco says it's working to restore power to less than 600 customers in Montgomery County. Pepco says it completed restoration for customers in the District of Columbia and Prince George's County.
Pepco says the extreme heat and last week's storm damage are stressing the electrical system's capabilities. The utility is advising customers to conserve electricity.
In northern Virginia, Dominion Power says storm outages have been repaired.
