Damage Clean-up Begins After Friday Storm
CLARK CO., Ohio —
Thousands of power outages have already been repaired after Friday's storm, but several hundred customers are still without electricity to their homes and businesses.
More than 15,000 Dayton Power and Light customers in Montgomery and Clark Counties lost power Friday night after power lines and trees were knocked down by a round of storms, our partners at the Dayton Daily News reported. Most of the outages were concentrated in Englewood, Fairborn and Dayton, a DP&L spokesperson said.
Fewer than 100 customers throughout the Miami Valley were still waiting for their power to be restored at 5 p.m. Saturday.
No major damage was reported, but the storms caused minor flooding in low-lying areas. Strong winds and lightning knocked down trees throughout the area.
The worst of the storms are likely past the area, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Erica Collura said.
"Clearing skies will allow some afternoon sunshine to replace the early morning showers," Collura said. "We'll have a chance to warm back up into the upper 80s."
Collura also predicted sunny skies for Sunday.
