Storm cuts power, uproots trees in city

April 09, 2000

A late afternoon storm with gusting winds left about 1,200 Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. customers without power last night.

"This is typical damage for a storm of this nature," said Darcel Kimble, a spokeswoman for BGE.

Several trees were reported uprooted in southern Baltimore, including one that fell onto an unoccupied car. Kimble said the outages were scattered throughout the service area, however. All service was to be restored by 10 last night.
