MoCo exec office, libraries lose power

By Michael Laris

Even Montgomery’s rough equivalent of City Hall – its Executive Office Building in Rockville – was without power Thursday, leaving senior officials working from home or other county buildings.

The Montgomery County Detention Center also lost power. Backup generators have kicked in, covering half to three-quarters of the needed electricity, officials said.

The Chevy Chase, Little Falls, Kensington, Aspen Hill, and Twinbrook libraries were all without juice or backup, officials said. The Rockville library is out as well, but some backup power is in place, according to officials.

Library officials said they plan to open some branches at 1:00 p.m. Thursday, though which ones depends on electricity and staffing. Officials advised patrons to call the county’s 311 number for specific branch information before venturing out.
