Source Of Local Power Outage Undetermined

Work is underway to find the source of a power outage in Franklin County. American Electric Power officials say more than eight-thousand customers in Northeast Columbus lost electricity last night. Crews spent the night trying to restore service. FirstEnergy officials say nearly 16-thousand customers in Cuyahoga County lost power yesterday when high winds took down power lines. Crews were able to have most customers back in service before midnight.
