Thousands still without power in Clermont County

CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

Duke Energy reports nearly 6,000 customers are without power in Clermont County on Sunday night.

The high winds and damaging storms from Friday, Saturday and Sunday are to blame. 

"Oh it was nasty... had that big wind," said Goshen resident, Cheri Harris. "I heard this tree limb and it fell down. (It) closed the road off. It was just nasty."

Fay Road near SR 48 had power back on by 2:30 p.m. Sunday. 

"You don't realize how much you need it until you don't have it," said Fay Road resident, Todd Ledger. "Then you realize what a necessity it is."

Ohio governor John Kasich and President Barack Obama have both declared states of emergency for the region. That opens the door for federal assistance and residents to obtain generators and water, if needed.

Merwin-Ten-Mile at Gaskins and Beechwood Road at Round Bottom in Union Township are closed on Sunday night due to the storms.
