Storms knock out power to 9,000


Powerful storms that swept through the Baltimore area yesterday afternoon and evening knocked out power to nearly 9,000 homes and businesses, utility officials said.

The outages were caused by wind-tossed tree limbs and were not related to the power failures that darkened much of the Northeast Thursday and Friday, officials said.

As of 11:30 p.m., Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. spokeswoman Sharon Sasada said, 3,827 electricity customers were without power in Baltimore County; 2,549 in Harford County; 2,203 in Anne Arundel County; 292 in Howard County; and 18 in Baltimore City.
