More than 130 customers near 24th Street NE and Benning Road NE had no electricity, Pepco spokesman Bob Hainey said. The outage was first reported at 5:07 a.m. Crews initially anticipated being able to restore power by 11 a.m., and then that estimate was changed to 1 p.m.

Power was back at about 11:30 a.m., Hainey said in an update.

The cause of the outage was not immediately known.
