Pikesville Still Waits for Power
BGE hopes to have power restored by end of weekend.
Pikesville is one of the regions that still has a lot of customers without power, but a BGE spokesman said Tuesday that the company expects to have all service restored by the end of the weekend.
Rob Gould, vice-president and chief communications officer for BGE, said they are well aware of the damage in Pikesville as well as the fact that many remain without power.
"Pikesville was particularly hit hard during this storm," Gould said late Tuesday afternoon. "We are keenly focused on Pikesville."
Gould said they didn't have exact numbers for how many homes in Pikesville were still without power, but he said that about 52,000 people in Baltimore County didn't have any.
Gould said one of the big problems in areas like Stevenson, Park Heights and Mount Washington is that a lot of trees fell on power lines and also hurt poles. This makes restoration of power even harder.
"We understand the challenge the people in the Pikesville area are going through right now without power," Gould said.
