Duke Energy reported several power outages in the Tri-State on Thursday evening.

As of 12:00 a.m., nearly 7,000 homes were without power in Hamilton County.

In Clermont County, 1,500 outages were reported and over 300 in Warren County.

With rapidly dropping temperatures and high wind gusts, areas of the Tri-State could continue to lose power throughout the evening and into early Friday morning.

Duke Energy said in a statement that they are closely monitoring the forecast and are prepared to respond if the weather should cause power interruption for customers. 

"We've been making sure our inventory and our supplies are there so that in the event we have any restoration efforts of any significance we make sure we've got that material on hand," company spokeswoman Sally Thelen told FOX19.

She says they have been using their service area in Indiana to monitor weather patterns before they get to the Tri-State.

"What we've been experiencing here is mostly the wind and the ground saturated has taken over some trees and impacted our lines," Thelen said. "Certainly it's not going to take a significant amount of wind to impact trees."

Line technicians, service crews and other personnel are available throughout the service area and are ready to respond to outages and emergencies that may occur.
