Power restored in Miami County after more than 3,600 lose service


More than 3,600 customers were without power Monday afternoon in Miami County after showers and storms moved through the region.

AES Ohio, formerly Dayton Power & Light Co., showed 3,641 outages in Miami County as of 1:38 p.m.

Other outages that remain include:

Montgomery County: 33

Preble County: 17

Champaign County: 1

Miami County: 1

Mary Ann Kabel, director of corporate communications, said the outages are due to sporadic showers and storms with heavy downpours that brought down trees and branches onto power lines.

In one case, a tree came down on a line in the Huber Heights area. Crews in that case will need to deenergize the line, take down the tree, assess damage and make repairs before putting the wire back up, she said.
