GUERNSEY COUNTY, Ohio -- Tens of thousands of Ohioans remained without power Thursday morning after a strong band of severe storms capped weeks of torrential rain on Wednesday.
AEP Ohio reported late Thursday morning that more than 84,000 customers are still without electricity in central and southeast Ohio. Tuscarawas County was the hardest hit in the state, with nearly 12,000 still experiencing outages.
Guernsey-Muskingum Electric reported that 1,150 customers are without power, the majority of which are in Tuscarawas County. That's down from more than 3,200 outages on Wednesday night.
Hundreds of Washington Electric Co-op customers - most of which are in Washington County - remain without power, as well. Co-op officials say five substations were knocked out by Wednesday's storms, and that one - the Fly substation - is still inaccessible, due to flooding.
While power is expected to be restored to most customers by the end of the day on Thursday, some may be without power for several days.
