Storm Outages

The City of Mount Rainier is experiencing major intermittent power outages as a result of the storm that passed through the metropolitan region this morning. City Hall has some power (phone lines and computers) but the alarm, A/C and some office lights are out. The MRPD has absolutely no phone lines and only one working computer at the moment. Public Works also has limited power.

We have reported the power outages for the City offices. We have been on hold with Verizon for the past hour trying to report the problem at the police department. MRPD/Bladensburg police communications lines are up and running.

Anyone with an emergency should call 911.

For all non-emergency calls to MRPD, residents should contact the dispatch line directly at 301-985-6565 or 6566.

Please notify all of those on your list serv to report their respective outages by calling 1-877-PEPCO-62. Each and every property has to do this in order for PEPCO to understand that magnitude of the outages and that the power outages are affecting several businesses and homeowners.
