Thousands Still Without Power

July 5, 2012

After a storm hit last Friday, thousands are still without power in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington D.C.. Current estimates put the number of people without power at about 80,000. Additional storms last night left much of the effort to restore power grounded.

A spokesman for D.C.’s PEPCO said in a statement, “We’re working as hard as we can to get service restored to all of our customers. This is not the kind of power struggle that we’re used to in Washington.” News crews caught up with the spokesman later to ask about the progress in harder hit Virginia and Maryland. He resisted any questioning simply saying “Wire you asking me?”.

This disaster has been a real test of the power companies capacitor to handle emergencies. News organizations have started to get public opinion on the response to the disaster by conducting several telephone polls. One thing is for certain, the utility workers are doing everything in their power to restore services to people’s ohms and businesses.
