Severe weather knocks out power to thousands


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The National Weather Service issued severe thunderstorm warnings Friday morning for most of the Miami Valley.

Storms blew through most of the northern cameras in the Miami Valley before 8:00 am taking power out for thousands. The storms have passed through the area for now but Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik says more storms are possible Friday evening and all through the weekend.

Trees have fallen across the area. A tree landed on the front porch of a Greenville home Friday morning. The owner tells 2 NEWS it happened around 7:15 am.

The homeowner said the tree damaged the railing of that house and landed on a neighbor’s car.

Dayton Power & Light tells 2 NEWS crews are working to restore power.  Mary Ann Kabel said Friday morning DP&L had nearly 14,000 people without power at the peak of the outages.

Trees are on power lines across the area causing outages. If you are without power you should call 1-877-4-OUTAGE (466-8243). You can also report an outage on the Dayton Power and Light website.
