Thousands remove electricity for a time in Bethesda area

Martin Weil October 1 during 11:16 PM

Power was cut off for a time Monday night to about 3300 homes and businesses in a Bethesda area of Montgomery County, as good as to a Bethesda metro station, authorities said.

A orator for Pepco pronounced “an issue” with a substation caused a outage, that had a arise outcome shortly before 8 p.m. Metro released an warning observant that escalators and elevators during a Bethesda hire had mislaid power. It pronounced a hire was temporarily closed.

Within an hour or two, Pepco pronounced a series of business but electricity had been cut to about 1300 customers. Metro pronounced energy had been easy during a Bethesda station.

The accurate inlet of a problem during a substation could not be immediately learned.

Also misleading was a series of people affected. A series of high arise unit houses are in a area where a outage occurred, and infrequently any building is treated as a singular customer.
