WILMINGTON, Ohio - Power has been restored in the Wilmington area Wednesday morning after more than 1,500 residents were in the dark Tuesday night.
During the outages, the city of Wilmington provided a shelter to residents to stay warm. The outages came after a transformer blew Tuesday evening.
Because of frigid temperatures in the Tri-State, the city made space for residents in two rooms of the city building, located at 69 North South Street. If that space reached capacity, the city was prepared to have people stay at the Wilmington Fire Department.
DP&L, the electric provider in the area, is reporting that power is restored in Clinton County as of 4:30 a.m.
