The most affected area appears to be west Xenia, with well over 1,800 customers affected around 4:30 a.m.

According to the site, estimated restoration time is 6 a.m.

UPDATE @ 1:50 a.m: Less than 200 customers are still without power across the Miami Valley, according to the Dayton Power & Lights site.

It’s still unclear if the outages are weather-related, though the affected county is primarily Montgomery.

2,500 customers were affected around 11 p.m. Thursday night, but with power steadily being restored those numbers have since improved.

INITIAL REPORT

DP&L crews are working to restore power to an estimated 1,405 customers across the Miami Valley after several outages were reported Thursday evening, company spokesperson Rob Beeler said.

Unclear if the outages are weather related, affected areas include Trotwood, north Dayton and Sidney, according to the company outage map.

Of the 2,500 customers affected by fallen wires in Trotwood, crews were able to restore power to approximately 2,100, and are working to restore a transmission pole that will have the remaining 400 plus up and running within a few hours, Beeler said.

Extra crews were called in to areas of north Dayton after a pole was struck during an accident, leaving 423 without power.

Another 400 plus are without power in Sidney due to fallen wires.

The number one priority is to restore power as quickly and safely as possible, then investigate the root cause of each incident, Beeler said.
