WASHINGTON (AP) Pepco says it has restored power to 90 percent of customers who lost electricity three days ago.

The utility says about 30,800 customers were still in the dark at noon Wednesday. About 23,000 of those outages are in Montgomery County.

Pepco says power should be restored to most customers by Thursday. More than 300,000 customers in Maryland and the District of Columbia lost power after thunderstorms swept through the area on Sunday.

Pepco says crews are working around the clock, and 400 workers from outside its service territory have been brought in.

Baltimore Gas + Electric reports that power has been restored to all but about 100 of the more than 120,000 customers who lost service. Power has also been restored to 94,000 Dominion Virginia Power customers.
