WASHINGTON - Pepco continues to restore electric service to customers hard hit by the intense winter storm that swept through the Washington Metropolitan Region on Wednesday evening.

Currently there are more than 1200 people working in the field to restore service to customers still without power. These crews will continue to work around the clock until power restoration is complete.

Pepco encourages customers without power or seeking an estimated restoration time to call 1-877-Pepco-62 or 1-877-737-2662.
