Clean Up from Weekend Storm Continues; Another Severe Storm Possible by Mid Week

Written by on April 3, 2023

Power was restored to AEP customers in Hardin County by late Saturday afternoon after the storm that rolled through early Saturday morning.

The storm hit Hardin County at around 1:30 in the morning bringing with it high winds and heavy rainfall.

As a result several buildings were damaged and numerous trees and power poles were brought down.

Around the region, a large greenhouse in Wapakoneta was destroyed by the high winds.

One of the hardest hit areas in terms of power outages in our region was deemed to be Upper Sandusky.

Scattered power outages remain for some residents there, and AEP crews are continuing to work to restore electricity.

After a couple of quiet days, the area is in store for another round of rough weather.

Strong to severe storms will be possible Wednesday during the afternoon and evening hours. 

The primary severe weather threat will be damaging winds.

Isolated large hail and isolated tornadoes will also be possible. 

In addition, gusty winds between 40 and 45 mph are forecast.
