More than 2,700 customers were without power in Montgomery County early Monday after thunderstorms battered utility lines overnight.
Toppling trees and branches brought down electrical wires at several locations in Bethesda, Potomac and Rockville, Pepco spokesman Clay Anderson said.
Glen Road in Potomac was closed between Travilah and Piney Meetinghouse Roads after an uprooted tree pulled lines into the roadway, Anderson said. Repairs were expected to last through the morning rush.
Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. was reporting more than 4,200 outages in Anne Arundel County Monday morning, and Virginia Dominion Power had more than 700 outages in northern Virginia.
