All good?

Anyone’s power out? (Ed. Note: Not exactly sure how you’ll be able to answer that question if your power is out…)

Let us know if you see any trees down blocking streets and/or any significant flooding.

DDOTDC reports:

“We have 38 confirmed locations with trees/branches down. Continuing to assess.”

If there is no power you can call Pepco at 877-737-2662. If there are overflowing sewers you can call Mydcwater at 202-612-3400. If you see fallen trees and/or tree limbs you can call 311.

DCRA reports:

“Pepco: 90 downed wires reported in DC; please keep reporting any downed wires: 877-737-2662. 30,000 DC residents w/o power.”

WMATA reports:

“Metro expects to operate bus, rail and MetroAccess service on a regular schedule on Sunday, August 28. Metrobus service began on select routes as scheduled at 5 a.m.; the Metrorail system will open at 7 a.m. There is no scheduled track work.

Metrobus and MetroAccess customers should expect possible detours around downed wires and trees and allow additional travel time.

Metrorail ridership was down about 67 percent yesterday as compared to last Saturday. Yesterday, 128,390 customers entered the system, as compared to 345,425 on Saturday, August 20.”

And for those who see can see light at the end of the tunnel – DCDPR reports:

“DC outdoor pools are on a delayed opening to clean and assess for damage. Outdoor pools are currently set to open at 2PM today.

Capital Bikeshare reports: “Capital Bikeshare is back open.”

And to continue on a lighter note – Go to any fun parties, bars last night?

If you have any good photos of the storm please send a few in an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail or upload directly to the PoPville flickr pool and let me know what street/neighborhood where the photo was taken. Thanks and stay safe.
