Power restored for most after thunderstorms move through

As thunderstorms moved across the more northern parts of the Miami Valley on Thursday night many were left without power, but most of those issues have been resoled.

Before thunderstorms moved in, an outage was reported in parts of Kettering and Oakwood Thursday evening affecting a few hundred power customers. According to the AES outage map, the outage affected 346 customers and was reported at 5:04 p.m.

AES spokeswoman Mary Ann Kabel said that the outage was caused by a tree falling on a main power line, and affected customers around Acorn Drive, Shroyer Road, Devonshire Road and Wilmington Pike.

Further outages started later in the evening as thunderstorms moved across the area.

The number of power customers without electricity as of 8 a.m. Friday morning is listed below by county, according to the AES and Ohio Edison maps.

  • Montgomery: 190
  • Miami: 177
  • Greene: 162
  • Clark: 21
