UPDATE Oct. 20 @ 4:45 p.m.:

DP&L crews have restored over 2,000 customers power within the last few hours, according to DP&L Spokesperson Kevin Hall.

Most outages, with the increase of gusty winds, are due to tree limbs falling and coming down into power lines.

It’s anticipated we will see similar conditions over the next several hours as wind gust continues, said Hall.

Crews will continue to work through the rest of the evening to ensure all customers are back in service.

It is unknown when all power will be restored.


Nearly 4,000 power outages have been reported in the Miami Valley area, according to the DP&L outage map.

A wind advisory for the area is in effect until midnight Sunday. We are working to confirm the cause of the outages.
