BALTIMORE (WUSA) --BGE has restored power to nearly 7,000 customers, the company stated in a press release.
The outages occurred after storms rolled in the area with high winds and heavy rain. BGE says trees and tree limbs have collapsed over power lines causing power in some areas to take longer to restore.
"BGE's restoration priorities first focus on public safety such as downed wires, followed by critical infrastructure, including hospitals and 911 centers," said Jeannette M. Mills, vice president and chief customer officer for BGE.
