Storms lead to power outages and event cancellations

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

After a spike in the number of people and businesses without power in Hamilton County, crews are restoring power to many homes.

As of 11:15 p.m., Duke Energy reported 1,990 of them didn't have electricity. That number has been up and down all afternoon as storms rolled through the Tri-State.

Clermont County was particularly hard-hit with power outages this afternoon. But at 11:15 p.m., Duke said it had restored power to all but 140 customers.

Meanwhile, the show did not go on Thursday night at "Live After Five" at the Banks. Event organizers postponed the street party because of the storms and excessive heat. It will be rescheduled for early August. It was to be the final "Live After Five" event of the season.

"Cinema in the City" in Mt. Adams was also canceled, too. Organizers say they'll show the Steve McQueen film "Bullitt" sometime in September.

Lakota Local Schools canceled all activities as well due to the weather.

FOX19 will keep you updated right here and on-air throughout the night.
