Power Out in DC, And Will Be For DaysSubmitted by Peace Gold Love on Mon, 07/02/2012 - 06:49
With much of Montgomery County still without power and ongoing 911 problems continuing across Northern Virginia on Sunday afternoon, local officials vowed to press utilities to restore service more quickly.
“I will not accept the timetable of July the 6th, said Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett (D), shortly after Pepco announced some homes would not have their power restored until Friday or even later. “Having our citizens go seven days without utilities in my opinion is not the kind of service we should expect.”
Underscoring how recovery from Friday night’s storm will stretch into the week ahead, all public schools in the District will be closed for summer sessions on Monday.
