Thousands of BGE customers lose power in Northeast Baltimore County after equipment failure at substation

Over 8,000 BGE customers in the Parkville area were without power amid several electrical outages Monday night. The outages, which also spanned parts of Towson and

Overlea, were first reported at about 9:45 p.m., according to the utility’s outage map. There were 37 outages in BGE’s coverage area earlier in the evening, leaving 8,704

customers in Parkville without power at about 10:20 p.m. Half an hour later, there were 42 outages and about 2,700 customers still without power. The outages were caused by

an equipment failure at a substation, according to Stephanie Weaver, a BGE spokesperson. She said most outages would be restored Monday evening. Later Monday evening, most

power had been restored in the Parkville area, with only six customers affected by outages shortly before 11:30 p.m. Most of the outages were estimated to be restored

shortly after midnight, according to the website.
