More than half a million Ohio homes and businesses have had their electric service restored in the wake of last Friday's windstorm, but that leaves about 131,000 still without power this afternoon. That's the word from Ohio's largest electric company, American Electric Power. Ohio Public Radio's Bill Cohen talked with some folks who are now in their seventh day without electricity.
Utility crews continue to work to restore power to the some 660-thousand customers affected by storms that ripped through the state Friday afternoon. another 20-thousand lost power when a second storm system moved through Sunday night.
