For Immediate Release
(Washington, D.C.) -- Pepco crews continue to work around the clock to restore power, but as quickly as we restore outages, new outages are reported due to the continued rain and flooding across the area. The bad weather is extending restoration times for some customers, and service restoration estimates may change. Pepco urges customers to please call back periodically to 1-877-PEPCO-62 to receive updated restoration estimates.
While crews from Pepco work to restore service as quickly and safely as possible, we want our customers to take extra precautions and stay safe. In some areas, electrical facilities have become water logged due to the heavy rain and weakened trees have fallen on power lines, causing power outages and downed wires.
Extreme weather is challenging for everyone. Pepco personnel are working hard under difficult conditions to restore power to all our customers. For additional safety information and for crew vicinities, visit our Web site, pepco.com.
