Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. crews finished restoring power to more than 1,300 customers after Friday's windstorm.

By Sunday evening, the utility company had restored power to more than 93,000 customers.

Linemen, tree crews, call center and storm response staffers worked over the weekend, including hundreds from Virginia, North Carolina, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The area most affected was Anne Arundel County, where more than 25,000 customers lost power. About 23,000 Baltimore County customers and 19,000 in Baltimore City were affected, according to BGE.

Spokeswoman Linda Foy said BGE would be monitoring an approaching weather system that may bring thunderstorms along with rain through today.

"We are expecting rain and thunderstorms which could include high wind and cause possible interruptions in electric service," Foy said.
