How's Your Power Holding Up, Essex?

A BGE graphic shows that, as of 3 p.m., many area outages are in northern Baltimore City and central and northern Baltimore County.

It started with only a handful Monday morning, but as we head into Monday afternoon, Hurricane Sandy is starting to wreak its havoc on residents.

The graphic to the right, taken from BGE's storm outage map, shows the outage situation as of 4:06 p.m. Monday.

Share your storm photos with Essex-Middle River Patch.

About 34,671 customers are without power, including 11,000 in Baltimore County, as of that latest update. Many of them, according to the graphic, appear to be inside the Beltway and up the Interstate 83 corridor. Most residents in eastern Baltimore County appear to have escaped major power damage thus far.

But that most assuredly will change. The utility has said to expect hundreds of thousands of outages as the worst of the storm arrives tonight and into Tuesday. BGE officials have also said not to expect an individualized restoration time if and when when your power does go out during this storm.

Remember, if your power goes out, call BGE at 877-778-2222 to report it.

How is the power situation where you are? Tell us in the comments!

Nice graphic, but worthless without a color code key.

http://www.bge.com/customerservice/stormsoutages/stormcenter/pages/default.aspx Pink dots mean 1-15 customers out, greens are 51-250, yellows are 251-1000.

How is the area around The Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Middle River. My family owned land there for a few generations and still have family there.

Flooding wasn't really an issue in that particular area, I don't think. I can't speak specifically to that church, but generally, most of the region weathered the storm pretty well.

After Scots and Frisian come http://www.outletcoachstoday.com those Germanic languages http://www.coachoutletod.com/ that are more distantly related: the http://www.coachs-outletcar.com non-Anglo-Frisian West Germanic http://www.coachoutletdp.com languages (Dutch, Afrikaans, Low German, http://www.coachoutletwo.com High German), and the http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com North Germanic languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net Icelandic, and Faroese). With the (partial) exception of Scots, http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org none of the other languages is mutually http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net intelligible with http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com English, owing http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com in part to http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com the divergences in lexis, syntax, http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org semantics, and phonology, http://www.coachoutletrf.com and to the isolation http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com afforded to the English http://www.coachoutletuser.net language by the British Isles
