Most of the homes affected by a power outage early on Thursday morning are back online, according to the latest outage map from Duke Energy.
Around 2,000 people are without power east of Cincinnati. Affected areas include Anderson Township, Turpin Hills, Sherwood and Forestville.
A maintenance official at Mercy Hospital in Anderson Township said they were using a backup generator for a period of time before power was restored around 10:15 a.m.
A spokesperson for Duke Energy said the outage issues were caused by a substation near 7001 Clough Pike. Crews are currently working on repairs. The spokesperson said customers could expect power to be restored between 12:45 p.m. and 2 p.m.
