The outages are being reported in multiple counties throughout the Miami Valley, with Montgomery County having the most affected customers with 67 residents.

Approximately 1,500 DP&L customers are without power in the area.

FIRST REPORT:

Approximately 23,000 DP&L customers were without power at some time during the wind advisory across the Miami Valley Saturday.

DP&L crews made a considerable amount of progress in restoring customers throughout the night and currently have over 2,000 customers without power, said Director of Communications for DP&L Mary Ann Kabel.

Projected wind gusts reached up to 40 mph Saturday night, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs.

The strong winds caused a lot of trees to fall on power lines, causing the outages, said Kabel.

Maintenance crews must first remove the trees safely before DP&L can work to restore power, Kabel said.

DP&L had extra crews and dispatch working Saturday and into Sunday. A fresh crew is working to restore the remaining outages.

Kabel said there is a high probability that most of the outages will be repaired Sunday.

There are no excessive outages in one concentrated location, but there are numerous small pockets of outages.
