The company is continuing their efforts with restoring power to more than 19,000 Tuesday night.

“Our first priority is the safety of our customers and crews. We urge customers to stay clear of wires hanging loose from poles or lying on the ground,” said Gary R. Stockbridge, Delmarva Power Regional President. “We’ve launched our restoration fleets into the affected communities and they will work around the clock until everyone’s power is restored.”

Delmarva Power  says more than 450 workers from across our Exelon family of utilities will arrive ready to work Wednesday morning.

“Our Delmarva Power crews and these crews from sister utilities will continue to work as safely and quickly as possible to restore power to every customer in our community,” said the company.
