MIAMI VALLEY, Ohio (WDTN) – Thousands of DP&L customers in the Miami Valley experienced power outages due to the windy weather.

A DP&L spokesperson told 2 NEWS that gusty winds up to 40 miles per hour caused trees and branches to bring down power lines, causing outages for roughly 5,500 customers at one point.

If you see downed power lines, you should never attempt to touch them.

They could not immediately say when power will be restored.

As of 7:21 am Friday, only 253 customers were without power.
