Storms knock out electricity to 11,000

A series of thunderstorms barreled through Central Maryland yesterday evening, dumping up to an inch of rain in some areas and packing winds up to 60 mph that uprooted trees and knocked out power to more than 11,000 residents.

Linda Foy, a Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. spokeswoman, said last night that 3,900 homes were without power in Baltimore County, 2,600 in Baltimore City, 2,900 in Harford County, 2,150 in Carroll County, 100 in Anne Arundel County and 70 in Howard County.

Crews were working late last night to restore electricity. Today's forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with highs in the mid-80s.
