Central Ohio recovers from severe storms

About 420,000 Ohio customers are without power and more than half of Wayne National Forest in southern Ohio is closed as utility crews work to restore electricity for parts of the state walloped by two rounds of summer thunderstorms. American Electric Power says storms on Sunday left 20,000 more customers without electricity as crews worked to restore lines damaged by bad weather two days earlier. It left residents longing for air conditioning as Monday's temperatures were expected to climb into the 90s. Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler reports on the weekend's wild weather in central Ohio, which began late Friday afternoon and ended with another round last night.
