Robbery suspect accused of assaulting elderly man

More power outages as wind gusts continue


More power outages are being reported this afternoon as sustained winds of 15-25 mph and gusts of up to 40 mph continue.

Dayton Power & Light officials reported 1,985 official outages just before 3 p.m. and said they are investigating the cause. Those outages are almost all in Greene County.

Approximately 2,400 DP&L customers were affected by power outages as Thursday night's storms swept through the region.

All but a few dozen customers had their power restored by Friday morning.

Check DP&L's website for the latest power outage information.

DP&L spokesman Kevin Hall said crews were on duty throughout the overnight working to restore electricity. The power company had prepared for Thursday's storms and had additional crews available.

The primary issue was tree limbs falling on lines. Several transformers also failed causing some outages, Hall said.

Duke Energy reported most power restored in Butler and Warren counties at 6:30 a.m.
