As some Rockville residents celebrated the return of power to their homes late Monday afternoon, others continued to wait for power to come back on. They could be waiting awhile.
The 20850 ZIP code, which includes Rockville Town Center, was one of the most affected parts of Rockville, according to Pepco's outage map.
That included 1,026 outages in an area that stretched from Great Falls Road and New Mark Esplande, eastward across Maryland Avenue and East Jefferson Street to East Middle Lane, according to the map. The estimated restoration time for those outages was 11 p.m. on Friday, according to Pepco's website.
With uncertainty surrounding when some parts of the Rockville could regain power, the city announced Monday that it was canceling its Independence Day celebration and fireworks, scheduled for Wednesday at Montgomery College.
Most of the New Mark Commons neighborhood has been out since Friday night's storm, Mara Bauman Miller reported on Rockville Patch's Facebook page.
Other residents reported outages in their neighborhood via Facebook and Twitter.
Molly Carter wrote that her home on Drake Drive in Rock Creek Manor also has been without power since Friday.
“No end in sight AND we are trapped if someone needs fire/rescue!” she wrote.
Carter’s neighborhood wasn’t the only one in the county reportedly cut off from first responders. In Montgomery Village on Monday afternoon, a tree remained atop a power line, making Rolling Knoll Court impassable and stranding residents in theire neighborhood.
@MrzJJackson tweeted a photo (seen above) with a message: "@RockvillePatch it looks like ZERO effort has been made to get our power back on Justice Road in Rockville."
But there was good news from some corners of the city. Carl May wrote that Congressional Village Apartments on Halpine Road had power restored at 11 a.m. Monday. “Hoping everyone else soon joins us,” he wrote.
