After a series of strong thunderstorms swept through Cecil County this Sunday evening, over 12,000 of Delmarva Power’s 44,000 customers have reported outages to the company. As the storm passed off into lower New Castle County, a number of spectacular rainbows were reported in various places around Cecil. A tug in transit through the canal radioed the Army Corps of Engineers dispatcher in Chesapeake City saying that he was watching a beautiful scene out toward Bethel Cemetery. “There’s lightning flashing off in the distance and two rainbows up ahead,” he reported to the Chesapeake City marine dispatcher.
Delmarva Power and Light maintains a real time service so patrons may check on outages. A clip of the map (below) from that web site highlight areas where service is interrupted. It’s address on the web is http://www.delmarva.com/home/emergency/maps/stormcenter/.
