Major restoration efforts are still underway. As of late Friday afternoon, SMECO had about 27,800 customers without power. Multiple feeder lines are locked out. The sustained high winds have knocked down trees and power lines across Southern Maryland. The damage to SMECO’s system has been severe and widespread, affecting customers across the entire service area.
SMECO has more than 30 crews working along with more than 50 additional contractor crews. These crews continue to work in very difficult conditions, with sustained high winds causing additional outages and impeding service restoration efforts.
