Days after violent storms swept through our region, hundreds of thousands of people are still without power. As of Tuesday morning, Dominion  Power in Virginia had reported 87,000 of its customers are without power, Baltimore Gas & Electric  was still working to restore power to 100,000 customers, and Pepco had reported 119,000 still out — with 76,000 of those customers located in Montgomery County.
