Power restored to most after Monday’s storms

Power restored to most after Monday’s storms

Monday night’s windy storms left hundreds of people without electricity into Tuesday morning.

At 10:15 a.m., Tuesday there were 521 reported outages on the DP&L online map, mostly in Clinton and Montgomery counties.

DP&L crews are keeping a close eye on the storms as they are expected to continue moving through past midnight, DP&L spokesman Rob Beeler said.

Crews were able to bring 2,489 Miami County customers back on line before the storms hit the region about 9 p.m., he said.

Those Miami County outages, which lasted about 40 minutes or so from roughly 8:20 p.m. until about 9 p.m., were not weather related, Beeler said, and the cause remains under investigation.

As luck would have it, Beeler said some DP&L crews just returned from Philadelphia, where they had helped that city in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaias.

The rest of the crews sent east to help with the storm should be back in the Miami Valley on Tuesday, Beeler said.

Here’s the DP&L online outage page readout at 10:15 a.m. Tuesday:
