41 Perry Hall Homes Remain Without Power

Baltimore Gas and Electric Company has restored 95 percent of customers who lost power in Hurricane Sandy.

Days after Superstorm Sandy first hit the area, some Perry Hall residents have spent more than 65 hours without electricity.

According to County Councilman David Marks, as of Thursday morning, roughly 41 homes in Perry Hall remained without power.

Several homes along Kilbride Court had power restored Thursday morning. Several homes along Schroeder Avenue, however, remained out after first losing power at about 5:30 p.m. Monday. The rest of the outages were largely scattered in small groups throughout the community, according to Marks.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Company officials announced on Thursday that 95 percent of customers who had lost electricity at the start of Superstorm Sandy had power restored. In Baltimore County, 7,396 outages remained out of 87,379 total outages.

"As each repair restores electric service to smaller groups of customers, BGE anticipates the vast majority of customers will have power restored by late tomorrow, with some isolated outages continuing into the weekend," according to a BGE release.

The Perry Hall Family Center Y at 4375 Ebenezer Rd. continues to offer free showers to anyone impacted by a power outage. Residents may also charge their electronic devices and warm up in the heat, the center announced.

I am also dependant on a well. However i do not have a sump pump to worry about, we hav a french drain due to a silly builder. I worry about my elderly grandmother who cannot tolerate too much cold. and also needs a nebulizer. the majority of my neighborhood is over 60. i just want them to put the power lines under ground so we dont have to worry so much about wind and ice.

Be glad to, if you are willing to pay the 10,000 to 30,000 dollars.

It will be cheaper for you to buy a generator than to share in the cost of burying power lines everywhere.

There is a type of back up sump pump that actually runs on water (won't work well with a well). Fairly expensive to install (extensive piping) but needs no electric.

Actually not too expensive, but like all back up systems, test them before you need them. And test them regularly.
