Butler, Warren lead in power outages

MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) - Butler and Warren counties are the hardest hit parts of the Tri-State after last night's ice storm.

Duke Energy reports 6834 customers without power in Butler County and 5049 in Warren County.

Hamilton County had 1810 out at noon, and Clermont had 126.

By contrast, Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties combined had only 49 customers without power.

For Duke Energy, by far the highest concentration of outages is in the area around Monroe, Middletown, Franklin, and Springboro.  They report one outage affecting more than 1000 customers, 4 affecting 250-1000 customers, and five affecting 100-250, with numerous smaller outages as well.

There is also an outage in the Oxford area affecting more than 1000 customers.

There were a pair of significant outages reported north of Hamilton, another around Lebanon, and five in north central Hamilton County. There was another sizable outage in Clermont County around the Union Township area.

Groups of smaller outages were in all the above areas, as well as West Chester, the western edge of Clermont County running from Union township through Milford and Miami Township toward Loveland, and along I-74 and suburban parts of I-71 in Hamilton County.

The City of Hamilton's electric utility was down to 30 customers without power, down from a peak of 7000 at the worst part of the storm, though most people had power back by 3 a.m. They said virtually all outages were caused by ice making trees or parts of trees fall into lines.

There could be major reductions in the number of customers affected, with more gradual reductions in the total number of outages as the day goes on. This is because utilities generally attend to the biggest outages first in order to get power restored the largest number of customers fastest.
