Some residents in our area woke up without power Wednesday morning as heavy storms moved through the area on Tuesday. 

Taking a look at outages in our area: 

Muskingum Co: 289 without service

Shortly after 9:00 p.m. Tuesday evening, a line of storms with winds reaching 50 mph made their way through the county, knocking down trees and power lines in numerous locations. AEP says power would be restored at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, but as of 6:55  a.m. power was still out.  The outage was caused by a downed line and broken power pole.
