A fault in the feeder line from the Benning Road substation at 8:20 a.m. shut down power to about 2,300 customers in Northeast Washington, said Pepco spokesman Robert Dobkin. He said the company is rerouting power in the area to get customers back online.

A second outage on a line from the King Wood subdivision knocked out power to 1,200 customers in Suitland. Power is also in the process of being restored there, according to Dobkin.

He said the outages were not related.
