Some southeastern Ohio residents will be waking up in the dark Tuesday thanks to Monday night’s big storm. American Electric Power says at least 29,000 customers across the state lost service
The power outage also knocked Whiz T-V, Z-92 and AM 1240 Radio stations off the air. (The stations are now back on-air) In our area this is how it looks: In Muskingum County 1000 customers lost service…in Coshocton County it’s 2000, Perry, 972, Licking County, 2000, Guernsey County its 856, Morgan, 315 and Noble County 240 customers are without power. A-E-P says its hard to say how long it will take until all service is restored, but Zanesville area customers could be back on-line around 6:00 am.  All Sheriff’s Offices in our seven county area reported some trees down, but no major damage or injuries.
