Power out for the night in parts of Ocean City

Delmarva Power this evening is disconnecting power to a portion of Ocean City, Md., south of North Division Street and Baltimore Avenue, due to storm surge flooding that has submerged electrical infrastructure. The service interruption, which is scheduled within the hour, affects about 620 customers and will remain in effect until it is safe to re-energize the equipment. Delmarva Power crews will re-evaluate the situation in several hours. Service restoration will be dependent on how quickly water recedes from affected areas. Customers should be prepared to be out of service until it is safe to re-energize the equipment. This is only done as a last resort in the interest of public safety and to protect the integrity of the infrastructure serving the downtown area.

If customers see a downed power line, they should stay away from it. Assume that all downed power lines are live and extremely dangerous. Customers are asked to please report any outages and downed wires by calling 1-800-898-8042. Customers also may report outages through delmarva.com or our mobile app. It is important that customers report their outage and request a call back to verify their power has been restored.
