HAMILTON, Ohio -- Thousands lost power Thursday as heavy rainfall hit the Tri-State.
According to Duke Energy's website, more than 1,600 people are without power in Mason due to weather.
Hamilton City Manager Joshua Smith tweeted early in the afternoon that the entire city was without power -- by 4:30 p.m., the lights were back on in all but a few pockets.
Butler County Emergency Management director Matt Haverkos said wind gusts and rain-saturated ground led to a tree falling down and impacting a power line.
