BALTIMORE (WMAR) -
It’s been more than a week since a massive storm knocked out power in more than 748,000 homes and businesses.
BGE has worked tirelessly to restore power after, what they are calling, one of the most damaging storms in the company's nearly 200-year history.
The company announced Sunday that it has made full restoration to all of it’s customers that lost power in the June 29th derecho.
BGE has also completed the restoration of more than 100,000 additional outages related to extreme heat and subsequent thunderstorms.
"We thank our customers for the incredible understanding and patience they displayed as we worked to repair the devastating damage to our system," said Stephen J. Woerner, senior vice president and chief operating officer for BGE. "We know that, in many ways, this restoration effort was more trying than any other. Multiple severe storms and greater than 100-degree temperatures made the already difficult situation of being without electricity almost unbearable for many of our customers. We are inspired by your generosity and grateful for the countless ways in which you have showed your support, whether it was offering water to our hot and exhausted crews or posting encouragement to one of our social media sites."
