Power Back On in Downtown Annapolis
New equipment being installed at a substation caused an outage for approximately 5,000 Annapolis residents, said a BGE spokesperson.
About 5,000 Annapolis-area residents lost power Thursday between approximately 11:30 a.m. and 12:40 p.m. after Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) installed some new equipment.
"We were putting in some new equipment at one of our substations," said BGE spokesperson Rachael Lighty. "So power was lost to about 5,000 customers in the Annapolis area."
Traffic lights were also out on Forest and Bywater roads, Gemini Drive, Hilltop Lane and Spa Road, according to Annapolis police.
All service was restored as of 12:40 p.m. Thursday, according to Lighty.
