Delmarva Power Disconnects Power to Part of Ocean City, Md.

Delmarva Power this afternoon disconnected power to a portion of Ocean City, Md., south of North Division Street and Baltimore Avenue, due to storm surge flooding that has submerged some of the utility's electrical infrastructure. The service interruption which affects 635 customers will remain in effect until it is safe to re-energize the equipment.

In order to ensure the safety of customers and emergency service personnel, Delmarva Power may need to de-energize the facilities of other coastal communities in Maryland and Delaware should flooding occur. Service restoration will be dependent on how quickly water recedes from affected areas. Customers should be prepared to be out of service until it is safe to re-energize the equipment.

If customers see a downed power line, they should stay away from it. Assume that all downed power lines are live and extremely dangerous. Customers are asked to please report any outages and downed wires by calling 1-800-898-8042. Customers also may report outages through delmarva.com or our mobile app. It is important that customers report their outage and request a call back to verify their power has been restored.
