Prepare for Possible Late October Hurricane

Take precautions for possible bad weather.

The Baltimore area faces the possibility of a rare late October hurricane next week.  Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) is preparing for outages and urging residents to take precautions. 

Customers should have a backup plan in case of an outage and prepare an emergency kit of supplies.  If there are outages, they can be reported to 877-778-2222.   I recommend you review BGE's Web Site before the storm possibly strikes, and also read Baltimore County's Emergency Preparedness Web Site.  

BGE is making improvements in many of the neighborhoods worst hit by Hurricane Irene and the summer Derecho, but in the meantime, please take precautions in the event of a similar emergency.
