Two days after the storm hit, there are still more than 90,000 homes and businesses without power in the metro area.
Pepco has more than 75,000 customers without power. Baltimore Gas and Electric has 16,000 customers still out and Dominion Virginia Power has more than 4,000 outages.
Pepco spokesman Andre Francis says they also have more than 2,000 downed power lines.
He says any downed line should be treated as live, and he advises customers to stay away from those lines.
"Make sure that nobody goes around it and make sure that you report. Crews are there working hard to restore power, so there are going to be times when they're not going to be able to make to a downed line right away so it's imperative that customers definitely stay away from those downed power lines and report them," Francis says.
He says the majority of their customers should be restored by 11 p.m. Friday. He says the remaining customers will be restored by the weekend.
