Pepco: Few Outages in Montgomery County During Snow Storm's Early Hours

A major snowstorm that is predicted to bring up to 8 inches of snow to Montgomery County by Wednesday evening affected few electricity customers Wednesday morning. 

Pepco's online StormCenter shows that less than 15 customers are without power in Montgomery County. Two homes are without power in the 20815 ZIP code, just east of the intersection of East-West Highway and Beach Drive in Silver Spring. Another cluster of outages were reported in the Kemp Mill neighborhood and in the Four Corners neighborhood of Silver Spring, both with less than five customers affected. 

Pepco announced that it brought in additional restoration crews from Alabama and Georgia to assist in case power outages are widespread. Heavy, wet snow and high winds can affect power lines and result in outages, the utility said. 

To report power outages and downed wires to Pepco, call 1-877-737-2662.
