Fort Meade - USNA - Andrews AFB: Power outages in Crofton MD area are spotty after Hurricane Sandy

Power outages in Crofton MD area are spotty after Hurricane Sandy

Thank goodness there were no massive power outages in the greater Crofton area that resulted from Hurricane Sandy!  This is little consolation to those currently without power, of course, but at least there will be nearby restaurants open for a hot meal.

The greater Crofton area power provider, Baltimore Gas Electric (BGE), publishes a map that is updated every few minutes. It indicates (at 7:26 a.m. on 10/30/12) that they serve 234,930 customers in Anne Arundel County, that 52,953 of them are without power, but they've already restored power to 21,548 customers. I think that's an impressive response rate, under very tough weather conditions.

If your power is out, you can check this map to get an idea of where there might be restaurants open, or whether your inlaws or friends might still have power (in case you're looking for a place to camp over if power remains off for any length of time).

If you rely on well water, the Maryland Emergency Management Agency has some suggestions about keeping safe. Read them at Keep Water Safe After an Emergency.

Stay safe, dry, and warm, and post your storm photos to the CroftonMD page on Facebook.

Margaret, great thing to keep people informed of what is going on. It will just take time, but the utility companies are doing as best they can. Glad you are ok!

We truly did dodge a bullet, but here's to hoping those who don't have power will get it soon. Thanks for keeping us updated Margaret and hats off to BGE.

I bought a Paperwhite new Kindle for just this reason. I can read at leisure but use my Ipad for work during outages.
