Prince George's County residents had a chance to tell the Public Service Commission how they think the utility companies performed during June's storms.
And unlike the fiery exchanges in Montgomery County Tuesday, there were several people in the crowd in Largo who were sympathetic to the companies given the magnitude of the June 29th storm.
It seemed to come out of nowhere, ripping roofs off buildings, toppling trees and cutting power to thousands.
"A lot of my neighbors lost food and communications," says Marc Sims. "They were really in a bind."
The PSC is holding eight hearings across the state to gather first-hand accounts of how residents weathered the storms.
"My wife and I both have offices at home, and when the power goes out, we are dead in the water," James Johnson says.
At least a couple speakers were sympathetic to the mammoth task of restoring power to thousands quickly.
"Pepco has had its problems in the past, but I honestly feel it has corrected those deficiencies," Arthur Turner says.
