Councilman Marks: Perry Hall Hit Hard With Outages

No major storm-related emergencies had been reported to police in the Perry Hall, Kingsville and White Marsh areas.

Thousands of residents between Perry Hall, White Marsh and Kingsville remained without electricity into Tuesday evening, the Baltimore Gas and Electric Company power outage map showed. 

According to County Councilman David Marks, power outages around Perry Hall after Hurricane Sandy were "more extreme" than after the July 27 derecho.

"During the derecho, power outages were more widespread in Towson. Now it seems they're more extreme in Perry Hall," said Marks, who represents both communities and lives in Perry Hall.

Marks emphasized that he believed BGE was making "steady progress" and thanked local residents for properly preparing for the storm. Several neighborhoods had their power restored less than 24 hours after losing it on Monday evening, he added.

Aside from power outages, including some affecting minor traffic intersections, and a few fallen trees, little local storm damage was reported to police.

According to Lt. Ron Brooks of the White Marsh police precinct and Officer Mark Dorsey of the Parkville police precinct, no major storm-related emergencies had been reported in the Perry Hall, Kingsville or White Marsh areas between Sunday evening and Tuesday afternoon.

We are on Snyder Lane and have been without power since 1:30 pm on Monday. We called immediately and BGE was polite and indicated there was an area outage. We, two seventy year olds, having been bailing out our sump pump well ever since. At first, it was every fifteen minutes and now with the heavy rains subsiding it is 11/2 hours and getting longer. The temperature inside is 56 degrees. We called BGE again on Tuesday at 2:00 pm and they said there was a tree branch down on a line and a team has been assigned but need an assessment from them. We rode up Sndery Lane and did indeed see a tree branch hanging on the line and a downed line with two orange cones around them. We hope BGE's assigned team shows up today!

Thanks for posting Mr.Quinn. At least we have an explanation now for why our power is out. We live near Snyder lane and our power went out at the same time as yours. Keep us posted if u see any BGE crews out there.
