Pepco Service Almost Completely Restored In Gaithersburg Area
Between 30-40 outages remain in the Gaithersburg area.
With Montgomery County back to a normal operating schedule, so too is the Gaithersburg area power grid.
As of 11 a.m., between 30 and 40 customers remained without Pepco service in the 20877, 20878, 20879, 20880, 20882 and 20886 ZIP codes combined, according to the utility company's StormCenter Outage Map.
Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett praised Pepco for its efforts before, during and after Hurricane Sandy hit the region, saying communication with the county was significantly better than during the violent late-spring storm earlier this year.
