Pepco counts each household as just 1 person. Especially with the recession a house9even apt) will hae multiple families living together to lower cost. So I strongly feel that MORE THAN 1.5million were effected from fri night's derecho.

Time for an overhaul at PEPCO. Check whether funds are going into hiring more managers & creating a vast bureaucratic bloat rather than improving its response and repair teams, equipment and service divisions. This is the time to ACT decisively and demand answers as to why this wealthy and hugely-taxed County can't get its utilities house in order. In comparison to similar counties in VA, PEPCO's actions in MoCo deserve an F-. And tree-huggers, please get out of the way when PEPCO tries to trim or cut down trees. Magnificent or not, they are a danger to people, businesses and homes if they're impacting power lines. Plant another tree and it'll live another 100 years & another generation can plant another.
