D.C. power outage: Lights off for 350+ Park View customers

More than 450 customers in D.C.'s Park View neighborhood are without power Thursday afternoon in the midst of one of the hottest days of the year.

Pepco's outage map shows that about 350 customers lost power just after 1 p.m. in the vicinity of Georgia and New Hampshire avenue, just northwest of Washington Hospital Center.

That number climbed to 450 customers later in the afternoon.

Pepco estimates that power will be restored by 8 p.m.
