WASHINGTON (AP) — The Maryland Public Service Commission has wrapped up the last of eight public hearings on electric companies’ handling of a June storm known as a derecho that caused outages for days.

WTOP-FM radio station in Washington reports that Wednesday night’s hearing at the Charles County Government Building in La Plata was the last hearing. Unlike previous hearings, however, no one showed up to testify.

PSC Chairman Doug Nazarian says other hearings drew at least 200 people and that the commission also has received a lot of written comments. Comments can still be submitted until Sept. 10.

The PSC plans hearings with utility companies on Sept. 13 and 14.
