BALTIMORE (AP) — Utilities in the Mid-Atlantic region are still working to restore power to customers who lost electricity during last Friday's violent storms.
Three utilities say a combined 254,000 customers are still without power in central Maryland, Virginia and New Jersey.
Pepco says it's restored power to 90 percent of those affected in the District of Columbia and two Maryland suburbs. And more than 146,000 Virginia homes and businesses remain without power, but that's down from a peak of about 1.2 million after the storms.
In New Jersey, Atlantic City Electric says about 206,000 customers lost service during the storm, but that's been reduced to about 30,000 customers.
Maryland has issued a heat advisory for the entire state for today, after issuing one for parts of the state for Wednesday.
