Power restored to NIH facilities, all open

Monday - 7/26/2010, 11:13am EDT

As of Tuesday morning, power has been restored to all National Institutes of Health Buildings. All employees should report, says an NIH spokesperson.

Some areas of Montgomery, Prince Georges County and the District of Columbia continue to experience power outages, downed power lines, inoperable traffic lights and general commuter safety hazards.

According to an NIH e-mail, "if an employee is still experiencing difficulty reporting to work due to hazardous road conditions or other safety concerns related to the recent storms, please discuss telework or the use of an excused absence (administrative leave) with your supervisor."

As part of a regional power outage, some NIH facilities had been closed Monday afternoon, but have now reopened.
