At approximately 3:23 p.m., a power outage occurred in the Bethesda-Chevy Chase area, affecting over 1,000 consumers according to Pepco.
“The power was not out in the whole town, only a portion of it,” said Chevy Chase Town Manager Todd Hoffman.
A Pepco representative told Hoffman that the outage was due to a tripped feeder.
The outage did not last long as power came back online throughout much of the area at approximately 5:45 p.m., but several pockets of the community were still affected.
“Approximately 300 customers in the county have outages near Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda. Crews expect to have power restored to everyone by 8 p.m.,” said Pepco spokesman Marcus Beal.
