CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Duke Energy crews on Saturday are working to restore power for more than 2,000 customers following severe storms.

At one point, nearly 35,000 residents were without power Friday night. As of 10:00 p.m. Saturday, 2,700 residents across the Tri-State are waiting for power to be restored. 

Crews have worked to remove downed trees and branches, replacing broken power poles, restringing power lines and more.

The majority of outages are in Butler and Hamilton counties. Most of the power was restored early Saturday afternoon, but the remaining outages will be restored by Sunday afternoon, according to Duke's power outage map. 

"We have crews out in the field across Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky assessing damage and restoring service. They’re working as fast and as safe as possible. While we do expect to make progress in restoring power overnight, many areas may not be safe for our crews to access overnight due to darkness and fallen trees/limbs. Regardless, once we have estimated restoration times, we’ll be sure to post them on the outage map and update you," Lee Freedman with Duke Energy said in a news release Friday night.

Customers are encouraged to contact Duke Energy at 1-800-543-5599 to report outages and get an estimated time of restoration.
