More than a flat tire

Update 3p.m.: Here's what the uprooted tree, tangled in power lines, looked like:

From DDOT comes this picture of damage done by a falling tree in the 1600 block of Montague St NW:

According to DDOT director Gabe Klein, there have been 303 reports of tree damage caused by yesterday's storm, and 140 have been resolved by the Urban Forestry department, while at 100 sites, there are electrical wires tied up in the trees, and the city is waiting on PEPCO.

I get it. Urban foresters can't touch the trees until Pepco ensures that the wires are not hot. So what is Pepco doing? That is the million dollar questions. Does Pepco have a task force set up to work specifically with the foresters?
