Local power companies are still dealing with power outages caused by strong winds today.

In the District, Pepco says just 15 customers are without power. But the company says more than 800 people in Prince George's County, Maryland have lost power... along with another one hundred and eighty customers in Montgomery County.

In Northern Virginia, Dominion Power says nearly 300 customers are without power - the company says power should be returned early this afternoon. A wind advisory remains in place until 6pm tonight.
