UPDATE: DP&L Offers Ice to Customers Without Power (STORM PHOTO GALLERY)
MIAMI VALLEY -- Dayton Power and Light said about 2,400 customers are still without power after a quick moving and powerful storm moved through the area on Wednesday.
Cleanup was underway, on Thursday after the storm took down trees and power lines across Montgomery County.
Tree services were busy trimming limbs and cutting up branches. A massive tree took a tumble on Spring Valley Avenue in Kettering. Eleven-year-old Jacob Turpin saw it fall.
"It was crazy. The wind was really strong," he said.
Another big tree fell on a home on Hathaway in Oakwood. The family there has yet to clean up.
"The damage was quite extensive throughout the service area," Dayton Power & Light Director of Operations Tom Tatham said. He said 48,500 customers were without power during the height of the storm,
and now less than 2,400 are in the dark. Tatham said more than 1,000 employees, from inside the call center to those out in the field are working to restore power.
He said crews from Indianapolis, Kentucky and Tennessee came in to help out.
"Out in the field, workers are putting up lines and poles, clearing tree limbs, replacing transformers," he said.
Dayton Power & Light is giving away free ice Thursday through 9 p.m. at Fairmont High School in Kettering and Hara Arena in Trotwood.
MIAMI VALLEY -- Starting today, DP&L is offering ice to help its customers cope while they are without power following Wednesday's storm.
At the height of the storm, 48,500 customers lost power and as of Thursday morning, 6,000 customers remained without electricity.
"Because of the significant damage the storms caused, the work required to make repairs will take time," a DP&L statement reads. "For instance, on one job, we have to replace 10 poles in Auglaize County, just north of New Bremen. We expect that by Friday morning, all customers will be restored except for individual outages and areas of isolated damage."
DP&L says there are 1,000 people dedicated to the restoration effort, including 200 people answering phones and 800 workers in the field. Mutual assistance crews from Tennessee and Indiana also are in the area to help.
Ice distribution centers are being set up in two Dayton-area locations: Hara Arena and Fairmont High School – for customers without power. The centers will be open starting at 3 p.m. today through 9 p.m. tonight. If needed, the centers will re-open on Friday at 8 a.m.
