The high winds have knocked out power to some homes in Muskingum and Licking Counties.  American Electric Power says there are 963 customers in Muskingum County without service and another 900 in the Newark area of Licking County are in the dark.  A-E-P says the high winds are knocking trees and tree branches into power lines. A-E-P says they expect to have all service restored by 7 pm  Monday.
