Baltimore Gas and Electric Company trucks were seen at multiple Perry Hall street corners.
Local public and private schools remained closed on Tuesday. Some businesses, including the Perry Hall McDonald's, remained closed. The Perry Hall Library was also closed.
A small crowd formed inside the Perry Hall Starbucks along Belair Road in the early afternoon.
Among them was Bob and Dorothy Gassel, who live in the Seven Courts neighborhood and said they never lost power and experienced little storm damage.
"We definitely prepared in terms of food. We're lucky," Dorothy Gassel said.
"It's a good thing. We expected it to be worse," Bob Gassel said.
