The utility has restored power to 77 percent of affected customers within 24 hours of the storm.

BGE and about 1,900 out-of-state linemen have been working around the clock since then-Hurricane Sandy hit Baltimore County.

The utility has since restored power to 77 percent of affected customers, according to a release. 

Outages in Lutherville however persist, at least in the York Manor neighborhood, where Ridgely Middle School was closed Wednesday.

A special Halloween message from Jeannette M. Mills, vice president and chief customer officer for BGE:

Tonight, we urge those observing Halloween trick-or-treating to be particularly careful, especially as it relates to numerous remaining downed wires and other hazards. BGE has safety standby personnel safeguarding many downed wires, but understand that not all downed wires are reported or known, and some additional lines may continue to fall.  Always assume all wires are energized and dangerous. Those planning to trick or treat are encouraged to plan a route in advance while it is light to make sure there are no downed wires.  Additionally, children should be accompanied by adults and limit activity after dark.  Those out in limited light or darkness should wear bright, reflective clothing and carry flashlights.

Is your neighborhood trick-or-treat friendly tonight? What are your Halloween plans? If you plan on dressing up, plan on entering Patch's best costume contest, for your chance to win $5,000.
