1,850 homes lose power

April 02, 1993|By Staff Report

About 1,850 homes in Carroll were without power after last night's thunderstorm, which brought heavy rain and hail to many areas of the state, officials said.

At its peak, about 10,000 homes statewide were without power, but electricity was restored to some of those homes by 10:30, said Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. spokesman Art Slusark.

"We've got some wires down and some lightning damage, but it certainly wasn't a major storm," he said, adding he had no estimate on when power would be restored to the remaining 6,800 homes.

Brief hailstorms, but no serious damage, were reported in Western Maryland and the Eastern Shore.
