Thousands of households and businesses are without power as Friday’s wind gusts powers through Montgonery County.

More than 80,000 power outages were reported to Pepco at 5:09 p.m.

Pepco spokesperson Marcus Beal said that all “crews are working around the clock to restore power quickly and safely.”

Meanwhile, Gov. Larry Hogan signed an executive order declaring a state of emergency beginning Friday. The executive order will allow the state to efficiently coordinate support and provide additional assistance to local jurisdictions. Dangerous conditions may continue throughout Saturday.
