WASHINGTON (AP) — Thousands of people remain without power in the Washington region following Sunday’s storm.

The storm brought cooler weather to the area after a heat wave, but also left widespread damage, including downed power lines and trees.

Pepco had more than 133,000 customers who had no power early Tuesday in Washington and Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. Pepco says that’s down from the peak outage on Sunday of 301,000 customers. Officials say crews continue to work to restore power and have help from utility workers from Delaware, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, Baltimore Gas & Electric reported power had been restored to more than 120,000 customers, but more than 3,000 residents remained without power early Tuesday. Most of them are in Prince George’s and Anne Arundel counties.
