Updated: August 29, 2011 - 03:28 pm
The number of power outages that can be blamed on Hurricane Irene has surpassed 4 million.
Winds of up to 115 miles per hour whipped across the Eastern Seaboard, ripping power lines from poles and snapping trees in half.
More than one million of the homes and businesses without power were in Virginia and North Carolina, which bore the brunt of Irene's initial march. Then the storm knocked out power overnight to hundreds of thousands in Washington, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, the New York City area and Connecticut.
Here are power outages as of 1:30 p.m. Sunday:
District of Columbia 21352
Prince George's 70779
ANNE ARUNDEL 94,449
