Outages remain widespread across the Washington region Tuesday as crews work to repair toppled utility poles and lines. Pepco officials said this morning that they expect power to be restored to most residents in their coverage area by Thursday.
The company said customers can call 877-737-2662 after 3 p.m. to get a better idea of when power will be restored.
