Out-of-state line crews to help restore power


More than 14,000 Dayton Power and Light customers lost power as strong winds accompanied a line of storms that passed through around midnight Thursday.

Shortly after 8 p.m. Friday, DP&L says 95 percent of those impacted have been restored, according to a release.

The company's outage map indicates 716 customers remain dark in Montgomery County, 91 in Greene and 27 in Miami counties.

Duke Energy shows 224 customers out in Hamilton County, 41 in Clermont and 27 in Butler counties.

Ohio Edison continues to report scattered outages in Clark County.

Wind gusts ranging from 40 to over 60 mph felled trees and damaged power lines, impacting tens of thousands of people across Southwest Ohio and the northern Miami Valley.

DP&L line crews have been working around the clock to repair damaged lines, according to the release.

The company expects work will continue all day Saturday to have everyone's power restored, with the exception of individual outages with significant damages.

"Beginning tomorrow morning, 75 line technicians from Ohio and Tennessee will be dispatched to expedite restoration efforts to those customers still without power," according to the release.
