Area spared from heaviest storm damage
Posted on: 06/13/2013
By  Mike Cullums
Well, a lot of us woke up this morning with lots of party ice, a couple cases of bottled water and beverages, and a full tank of gas…which makes us halfway ready for a weekend camping trip.  
The great derecho of 2013 probably didn’t qualify, although it came close in northern Ohio. Here in the hills, damage reports and power outages have been few. Perhaps the best way to compare this morning’s storm with the severe windstorm of last June 29 is to compare the number of power outages this morning with last June. Today’s are about one percent of the 2012 Derecho total.  

Power outage updates:
AEP reports that all customers in Washington and Morgan Counties have had service restored.  At its peak, there were about 185 out in Washington County and nearly a thousand without service in Morgan County.
Washington Electric Cooperative's web site shows there are still about 250 customers without power.  They were hoping to have service restored by noon today.
Mon Power reports about 30 customers in Pleasants County and more than 4,000 in Wood County without service as of 4:30 pm today.
