@WantToRunn sums it up best though I’ve been getting many emails from those equally frustrated:
“@PoPville they [Pepco] are not providing any time frame! [for restoration in Dupont] This is ridiculous! Almost 36 hours now!!”
Then there is this message from Pepco’s website:
“At this time we are aware that our outage map is not consistently reflecting estimated restoration times and the number of customer outages reported near Dupont Circle. We are working to resolve this issue as part of the overall restoration effort.”
From the Dupont listserv:
“This is an update from Pepco.
Please be advised that, during the process of restoration, we have identified that additional stretches of secondary cables will have to be replaced between 19th and 20th ST, and at 19th and Riggs Pl. PLEASE NOTE THAT AS A RESULT OF THIS, THERE WILL BE NUMEROUS CUSTOMERS THAT WILL REMAIN OUT OF POWER AFTER 4PM. Once the assessment of the area is completed we will be in a better position to establish an ETR for these remaining customers. We will remain in contact to provide updates as we have them.”
