The outage began about 5 a.m. and affected an area bordered roughly by 10th Street SE, G Street SE and the Anacostia River.

Tyler Elementary School at 1001 G St. SE lost power, but was able to open on time at 8:35 a.m. once service was restored, a school representative said.

Service was restored to most customers before 8:45 a.m., according to Pepco. Fewer than 10 customers were still without electricity at that time.
