Since Friday's windy storm, crews have been busy most of the weekend cleaning debris and restoring power.

Along Hines Rd. in Parkville, however, residents are frustrated crews haven't removed a tree that fell on power lines hanging over an intersection.

"Every time somebody has to underneath there, they're scared that this tree is going to fall on their car," said Michael Montgomery, who lives across the street from the intersection.

Montgomery called BGE several times over the weekend and was told crews are doing the best they can removing fallen trees and restoring power to thousands in Maryland.

"I would think they would make it a priority," Montgomery said. "I know it's a safety condition. Somebody needs to come and cut it down."

BGE crews were working around the clock since Saturday. Crews from other cities and as far as Canada came to Maryland to help with the restoration and clean up efforts.
