LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Power has been restored to more than 15,000 residents left in the dark in the Montgomery County Tuesday night.

A problem at a Montgomery County sub-station tripped a transmission line causing the outage that initially left more than 17,000 customers in the dark, said David Kline, manager of external affairs for Potomac Edison.

Customers in Germantown, Boyds and Clarksburg reported outages.

Numerous traffic signals in the Germantown area were without power, along with homes and shopping centers for hours.

Power was restored to most of those residents by around 8 p.m.
