BGE says the wind storm that hit Maryland on Friday is the most damaging storm they have seen in six years. 

Since the nor'easter on Friday, more than 400,000 outages have been caused by high winds in the BGE service area.

BGE says that customers should prepare for a restoration effort that will continue through the weekend and possibly into early next week. Because of the volume of outages, crews from BGE's Exelon sister utility company in Illinois will come to help out with the damage.
