DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Power and Light is dealing with a sizable outage right now in parts of the Miami Valley.
DP&L’s outage map indicates more than 3,000 customers were without power in Montgomery County as of 10:30 a.m. As of 11:00 a.m., the number was down to a handful.
But, another thousand remained in the dark in Champaign County. Crews are investigating what caused the Champaign County outage. As of 3:00 p.m., only 67 were without power in Champaign County.
The Montgomery County outage was due to a squirrel that entered into the Englewood substation. DP and L crews were able to quickly transfer power elsewhere to restore service.
