WASHINGTON — Power companies in the Metro area worked to restore power to thousands of residents Sunday after a storm caused flooding, downed trees and outages.

The Washington Post reports that at the peak of the storm roughly 52,000 Dominion Power customers in Northern Virginia were without power, though all but about 450 of them had their power restored by Sunday evening.

Pepco is reporting roughly 550 customers are still without power, as are about 620 BG&E customers.

Flooding during the storm displaced 29 people in six apartments in a complex in Riverdale, Maryland. There were also several instances of lightning striking structures and severe causing damage.
