DP&L has made additional progress in restoring power in their 24-county region after the severe wind storm on June 29th.
The company said, “Starting Wednesday, we will be working on the outages with fewer than 10 customers and those challenging single outages. Assuming no more significant weather events, we will have all customers restored by Thursday night, ahead of our promised schedule.
As of 5:30 Thursday morning, 96 Logan County customers were without power, two customers were affected in Shelby County, and all of Champaign County was restored.
Later Wednesday evening the Logan County Sheriff's Office reported more power outages in Belle Center. These outages were caused by another severe thunderstorm that swept through the region late Wednesday night.

DP&L has 1,520 people from 9 states focused on restoring power 24 hours a day until all customers have power. Crews work for 16 hours and take 8 hours rest. They work staggered shifts so crews are working day and night.
Why do your neighbors have power and you don't? Read how we restore power in major outages. The problem potentially could be the power connection to your house. Learn if you need to make repairs before we can restore service.
Think safety first: Always assume power lines are live and stay away from them.
If your power is out, make sure that all heat-producing appliances (ovens, ranges, toasters, curling irons, etc.) are turned off or disconnected from a source of electricity so that when power is restored, your home is safe from accidental fires. And keep generators far from your home & open windows.
Stay clear of our crews as they clear power lines and work to restore power for your safety and theirs.
