BERLIN, Md.– Delmarva Power says that on Monday evening it will finish repairs to a 69,000-volt transmission line that was damaged by a severe thunder and lightning storm that struck an area near Berlin over the past weekend. The utility says the repair work will require de-energizing electric service to Berlin, leaving the town without power for about 10 minutes to one hour, beginning around midnight.

Delmarva Power spokesman Matt Likovich said the fast-moving weather front sheared off five poles, locked out four substations and caused a power outage for about 20,000 customers in Worcester County late Saturday afternoon.

Most customers had electric service restored around 6:45 p.m. Atlantic General Hospital and Berlin Nursing Home had to utilize their respective backup generating units until Delmarva Power could restore normal service to those facilities around 10 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 12.

If Berlin residents experience an outage longer than one hour Monday, they are asked to report the service interruption to the Town of Berlin by calling (410) 641-1333.
