WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Pepco employees, local contract crews and outside utility reinforcements have restored three out of every four outages from Friday's violent storm that left more than 443,000 customers without service.

Through the evening and overnight Monday, Pepco restored about 90,000 additional customers in:

•District of Columbia - 26,000 additional customers restored
•Montgomery County - 42,000 additional customers restored
•Prince George's County - 22,000 additional customers restored

Pepco expects the vast majority of customers without power to have electrical service by late Friday. On Wednesday evening, Pepco will update the Estimated Time of Restoration (ETRs) for customers who may still be without power after Friday night.

Crews from Hydro One in Canada, Progress Energy in Florida and Delmarva Power (Pepco's sister utility Co.) will join in the restoration efforts.

Pepco continues its focus on restoring critical care facilities on Tuesday. All facilities have been assigned crews to work their individual outages. All hospitals were restored Sunday.
