Officials said that at the peak, just under 8,000 people were without power due to the weather Saturday night, with the most significant damage being in the Troy and Wilmington area. However, when DP&L spoke to us, that number had been cut down to below 2,000.

Officials said that they had a “huge contingent” of people working in specialized crews to assess and repair the damage, consisting of 400 people working in the field and a further 100 inside.
