There are still thousands of people without power days after a powerful wind storm knocked down power lines.

As of Wednesday morning, there are 8,100 homes without power. The majority of the outages are in Harford County but Baltimore and Anne Arundel Counties also have a lot of outages.

BGE is working day and night to get electricity restored, and they're getting a lot of help from crews in other states. Crews from 14 states as far as Texas and Florida are here in Maryland to assist with the efforts. BGE is also getting some help from our neighbors to the north! Crews from Canada made the trek to help restore our power.
