90% of Customers Back On; Pepco Asking for Customers' Help to Pinpoint Remaining Outages to Speed Repairs
Pepco has restored power to more than 90 percent of its customers who lost electricity as a result of Hurricane Isabel. Pepco is asking for customers' help to pinpoint the location of the remaining outages.
Customers who are still without power but see that their neighbors have power are urged to call Pepco again at 1-877-Pepco-62 to report their outage.
