Power Restored For 6,000+ Germantown Residents

by MCS Staff

Power has been restored for over 6,000 residents in the Germantown area after a small animal came into contact with electrical equipment to cause the outage on Sunday afternoon.  Power for most residents was restored by Sunday evening, but some retailers in the area were forced to temporarily close due to the outages.

Thousands of residents had to deal with this outage on the hottest day of the year, with temperatures approaching 100 degrees on Sunday afternoon. According to an NBC Washington report, “A spokesperson for FirstEnergy, of which Potomac Energy is a subsidiary, the company couldn’t confirm the exact type of animal that caused the outage, except that it was similar in size to a squirrel.”
