Montgomery County suffered some light synchronization problems along the I-270 corridor Wednesday morning.

The outages are mainly affecting the Rockville, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Damascus, and Derwood areas. The lights are changing, but they are not synchronized with other lights along the same roads. NBC4 is reporting that the problem is due to storm-related power outages overnight.

The county's chief traffic engineer tells the Associated Press that the agency is hoping to have the problem resolved by noon, but that drivers should expect delays during this morning's commute.
